A 43-year-old man was injured when a bullet grazed his face during a shooting Monday evening on East 23rd Street, according to Anniston police.

The victim told police an unknown group of people started firing guns at his neighbor’s house on the 400 block of East 23rd Street, Anniston police Capt. Allen George said.

George said the shooting occurred between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The victim reportedly had a bullet brush his face after it hit a wall, George said. The man was treated at the scene by Anniston Emergency Medical Services, George said, and he declined to go to a hospital. The man’s home sustained $300 worth of damage from the bullet, according to a police report.

The neighbor, whose home was the target of the shooting, declined to file a police report, according to the captain.

The suspects fled before police arrived, George said, and the shooting was still under investigation this morning.

Suspects could be charged with discharging a firearm into a building and second-degree assault, both felonies, according to a police report.
