One shot struck the man in the hand while the other 12 narrowly missed striking him, police said. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police said they’re not sure why the assailant shot through the window.

However, they said it’s possible that there were actually two shooters outside the man’s home. Police said they recovered six casings from a .380-caliber handgun. The rest of the casings recovered were from a 9 mm pistol.
