JOLIET – Police say a victim exchanged gunfire early Tuesday in Joliet with a would-be robber.
About 1:30 a.m., a 65-year-old man came home to the 500 block of Strong Avenue and was approached by an armed man in his driveway who demanded money, according to Joliet Police Chief Brian Benton.
"The victim pulled a legal concealed-carry weapon and he and the suspect began to shoot at each other," Benton said.
The robber did not appear to be injured as he fled the scene and the victim was not injured either, Benton said.
The suspect was described as a black man wearing a beige coat and black hat. He was carrying a black handgun.
