Detroit police are investigating after a 51-year-old man was shot multiple times early Sunday by a man who had recently assaulted him.

The shooting took place just before 5:30 a.m. on the 16000 block of Ward, which is just south of Puritan and west of Meyers.


The victim was in bed when shots were fired into his bedroom window, police said, hitting him multiple times in his hands and back. Medics took him to a hospital, where he's listed in temporary serious condition.

The man told police that the suspect, described only as a 30 to 40-year-old man, had assaulted and threatened him two days prior.
