One of multiple shots fired into an Ash Street home early Monday hit a Lexington woman in the head.

The woman, who was not identified, was grazed by the bullet. She was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where her wound was determined to be non-life-threatening, according to Sherelle Roberts, spokeswoman for the Lexington police.

The shooting happened at 3:15 a.m. in the 400 block of Ash Street

The woman's boyfriend was in the house and said he heard gunshots and told the woman to get down on the floor before she was hit.

Police said they found nine semi-automatic shell casings in the middle of the street outside the house, and there were multiple bullet holes in the windows and in the front of the house.

Police said they took a report for first-degree assault.
