A 24-year-old man is in temporary serious condition after his head was grazed by a bullet Thursday night, Detroit police officials said.

The shooting happened at about 11 p.m. Thursday in the 9300 block of East Jefferson near McClellan Avenue, according to authorities.

A woman called 911 to report hearing three gunshots in the same area of the city and saw a man running on Jefferson near McClellan.

Police arrived and found the scene of what appeared to be a shooting. 

Officers then received a call from a hospital about a man being treated for a gunshot wound on the right side of his head.

Police went to the hospital and spoke to the victim, who had been privately conveyed to the hospital. A bullet grazed the right side of his head, according to officials.

He told police he was at his girlfriend's home in the area when he was approached by another man who was dressed in black.

The victim ran away, but tripped, police said. The suspect then stood over the victim and fired three shots at him with a gun.
