ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A bullet grazed the head of a nursing home resident in St. Paul when gunfire erupted outside the facility, according to police.

The 63-year-old resident was sitting outside of Galtier, a Villa Center in the Summit-University neighborhood Tuesday night when numerous shots rang out, officials said.

The resident was taken to the hospital, treated and released, according to the nursing home which said the man “was the victim of senseless random gunfire,” the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.

Officers canvassed the area and found nine shell casings from two different caliber handguns. A nearby resident reported their home had been struck and damaged, said St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Mike Ernster.

Police are investigating who was involved and what led to the shooting, Ernster said.
