CHICAGO (STMW) — A man was shot early Saturday when a suspect on a bicycle attempted to rob him the River North neighborhood on the Near North Side.

The 25-year-old man was leaving a bar in the 700 block of North Franklin Street at 3:15 a.m. when a male on a bicycle approached and announced a robbery, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.

The suspect then shot the man and fled on the bike without any proceeds, Greer said.

The victim was taken in good condition to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound in the leg.

No one is in custody and Area Central detectives are investigating.
