A man was injured early today as his home on the city's southeast side was the target of gunfire. 

Police were called to the home in the 2800 block of Oakwood Drive at 1:20 a.m. Officers found the man standing in a garage, and he had a bullet wound to his lower back. 

"There were numerous (bullet) holes in the house on the north side and east side," according to a Fort Wayne Police Department report. Investigators found some shots made their way into the living room and a bedroom of the house. 

"The holes from the east side of the home were at the level of the bed mattress," the report states. 

Anyone with information can call the police department at 427-1201.
