A Windsor man is recovering after a bullet grazed his neck while inside a motor vehicle late Wednesday night.

Officers were called to a “report of a serious assault with a firearm” in the area of 164 Burnham St. around 11:30 p.m.

Police said 23-year-old man, whose name was not released, “suffered a non-life threatening graze to the left side of his neck,” police said.

According to police, he was sitting in a Honda Acura with two other people when two men on foot walked passed them. One of the men shot at them several times and then took off. 

The victim was rushed to Saint Francis Hospital where he was treated and released.
