A Lexington man was hit by one of several bullets shot into his apartment on Bryan Avenue Wednesday night, police said.

According to police, the man was in bed when someone came up to the front door of his second-floor apartment just before midnight and began firing.

Police said at least eight shots were fired into the door. One of those bullets traveled through the apartment and hit the victim while he was still in bed.

The man suffered a gunshot wound to his back and was taken to the University of Kentucky hospital. Police said his injuries are non-life-threatening.

Police said the suspect took off after firing the shots and although several people called to report the shooting, no one was able to get a good look at the shooter.

Police do not believe this was a random act but said they have little information to go on.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call the Lexington Police Department.
