GRIFFITH — One person was grazed by a bullet that was shot into an apartment late Tuesday, an official said.

People living inside the apartment told investigators they couldn’t think of anyone with a motive to shoot at them, said Griffith police Cmdr. Keith Martin.

Police responded about 7:20 p.m. to an apartment at Park West Boulevard and 35th Avenue, where they discovered a single shot was fired into the apartment through a patio door window, Martin said.

The bullet grazed a person inside before coming to a rest. It may have struck an object outside the apartment before it entered, Martin said.

The injured person suffered a minor abrasion and was treated at the scene. No one was transported to a hospital.

It appeared that there was no known intent in the shooting, Martin said.

Anyone with more information may contact the Griffith Police Department at 219-924-7503.
