Bullet found in man's head hours after shooting

More than seven hours after a man was struck by a car while fleeing from gunfire in East Baltimore on Sunday, doctors found a bullet lodged in his head and removed it.

At least one car crashed while trying to flee the shooting, which happened in the 2700 block of Ashland Avenue in the Madison-Eastend neighborhood at about 6:30 p.m., police said. The man was struck by the car and his head and leg were injured, while a second man suffered a back injury that was not the result of gunfire.

At the hospital, doctors at one point told police the man had not been shot and that his injuries were the result of being struck by the car, but they later found a bullet in his head, though it did not break his skullcap. While the man's injuries were severe enough for homicide detectives to be notified of the incident at first, police said on Monday he was listed in good condition at a local hospital.
