A se­cu­rity guard who works for the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity swapped shots with two mug­gers in Har­lem, po­lice said Fri­day.

The 42-year-old vic­tim, who works for a com­pany con­tracted by the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity to guard gov­ern­ment fa­cil­i­ties, had just got­ten into his apart­ment build­ing at the Polo Grounds Tow­ers on Fred­er­ick Dou­glass Blvd. about 9:50 p.m. when two men fol­lowed him onto the el­e­va­tor.

The sus­pects fol­lowed him onto his floor be­fore pulling a gun on him rob­bing him of his wal­let and neck­lace.

As the pair ran off, the vic­tim ran into his apart­ment, grabbed his gun and pur­sued the thieves — and be­gan trad­ing shots with them in the street, cops said.

No one was hit as the thieves ran off, of­fi­cials said.

No ar­rests have been made.
