Detroit — Police are investigating after a 55-year-old man was shot in his arm while doing work at a home late Monday night on Detroit's west side.

The shooting took place at 10:30 p.m. on the 7200 block of Dacosta, said Officer Holly Lance, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. That's in the Warrendale neighborhood, north of West Warren and east of Telegraph.

The victim was doing work at the home — a rental that's between tenants, per the homeowner — when bullets came through the front, striking the victim in his left arm. Lance said a second man was hit by debris, but refused medical treatment.

Medics took the shooting victim to a hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.

Other homes on the block were shot up as well, police said, but those homeowners declined to cooperate with investigators.

There is no description of a suspect.
