Police are investigating an incident of shots fired at a north Salina apartment.

An 85-year-old man called police after noticing several bullet holes in the front door of his apartment in the 700 block of N. Ninth Street. Officers located nine bullet holes in the door and above the door in the siding, Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester reported this morning. Some bullet fragments were located at the scene, indicating a small caliber gun was used, he added.

The man, who is hard of hearing, did not know when the incident happened, and there were no witnesses who heard the shots, Forrester noted.

None of the bullets entered the apartment. There was no cost estimate for damages.
