Authorities are investigating after a man reported his home was shot several times.

Lincoln police officers responded to the call around 6 a.m. Wednesday near 59th and Aylesworth Ave.

A 47-year-old man told officers he was sleeping when several shots were fired at the west side of his house, breaking several windows. The man reported the shots sounded like they came from a BB or pellet gun.

Police said video shows a male with an air rifle pumping and shooting at the victim’s house. Officers found a glass door and windows with pellet-sized holes in them. A storm door was shattered, police said.

Estimated damage is $1,000.

The victim told officers he did not know the suspect or why he may have been targeted.
