A St. Paul shooting victim might've been saved by his baseball cap.
According to St. Paul Police Department, officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Arkwright Street around 1:15 a.m. this past Sunday on a report of an assault.
On arrival, they found a St. Paul man suffering from a gunshot wound to his forehead, which might've been much worse if not for his hat.
The man had been sitting in his truck talking to someone who lives nearby, when the shooter walked around a corner and opened fire.
It sent a bullet through a window, which then lodged into the "forehead area of the flat-brimmed baseball hat" the victim was wearing.
The victim was transported to Regions Hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening injury.
The shooter fled on foot and no arrests have been made. Police do not believe the shooting was random.
