ST. LOUIS • A concealed-carry permit holder exchanged gunfire on a St. Louis street Monday night with men who tried to rob him.

No one was hit by any of the shots, police say.

It happened at about 9 p.m. Monday in the 5200 block of Goodfellow Boulevard.

Police say a man was approached by five men who tried to rob him. When he refused to turn over any of his property, one of the would-be robbers fired a shot at the victim but missed.

The victim pulled his own handgun and fired several shots at the suspects. None of his shots hit anyone either, police said.

The suspects ran off. No arrests have been made.
