A 61-year-old man is recovering after being shot in his head while riding a bike on Detroit's west side early Sunday morning.

The bullet had traveled through the cyclist's head and exited through his nose before he pedaled to a party store to get help. 


The shooting took place 12:15 a.m. Sunday, in the area of Northfield and West Warren, which is east of Livernois. 

After hearing a bang, the victim realized he'd been shot. The victim then pedaled to a party store on the 5000 block of West Warren and asked store staff to call police.

Police recovered a bullet at the scene but have not yet made an arrest. No suspect description is immediately available.
