A 20-year-old woman suffered a graze gunshot wound to the head early Sunday morning on Detroit's east side, and police have already arrested the man accused of doing it. 

The shooting took place about 3:20 a.m. on the 5000 block of East Outer Drive, near the suspect's home, police said. 

The 23-year-old suspect asked the victim, his ex-girlfriend, to come over to his home, police said. When she arrived, she was met by the suspect and his new girlfriend. 

The trio argued, and the victim got in her vehicle to drive off, but the suspect pulled out a gun and fired a shot, which grazed the woman in her head. She drove herself to a nearby McDonald's for help. Medics arrived and transported her to an area hospital, where she's listed in stable condition.

Police arrived and not only arrested the suspect, but also recovered the gun believed to have been used in the shooting.

Sunday's shooting is at least the second shooting on the 5000 block of East Outer Drive this year. On Jan. 3, just after 7:30 p.m., a 27-year-old man was fatally shot in the stomach when he answered his door.
