CHICAGO (WLS) -- A liquor store worker exchanged gunfire with two suspects during a robbery Tuesday night on Chicago's Northwest Side.

A source said two men reportedly went into a liquor store in the 4200-block of North Milwaukee Avenue in the city's Portage Park neighborhood around 9:20 p.m., pulled a gun and demanded money.

The source said they took $100. Police said the worker had a gun and fired at them. The suspects fired back, police said.

No one was hurt, police said. But the source said the rear window of the suspects' getaway car was apparently shattered by gunfire. Police said they also got away with some merchandise.

No one is in custody. Area North detectives are investigating.
