1900 block Northport Dr


40-year-old male


Officers responded last night to a report of a person who fired a gun in an apartment. While on scene, officers learn that the victim had several friends over at his apartment, and during that time, he hears a commotion coming from the front. As the victim is about to walk out of his bedroom to investigate, his bedroom door is kicked in and he is confronted by an unknown black male subject who is armed with a handgun.  This suspect demands "his stuff" and proceeds to strike the victim once on the side of the head with the handgun.  The suspect then fires one round through the bedroom door.  The round continues through an interior wall and into the ceiling.  A canvas of the building is completed with no answer at the adjacent apartments. Investigation is ongoing.
