Man shot on his porch while celebrating Father's Day

DETROIT, Mich. (WXYZ) - A Detroit man was shot in the leg while celebrating Father's Day with his loved ones.  

The incident happened around 5 p.m. on the city's east side in the 800 block of East Grand Blvd.

His wife says he was sitting on his porch when the bullet struck him in the thigh. The stray bullet ricocheted from across the street. 

"We were just listening to music and watching cars go by," said the victim's wife. 

The 64-year-old was taken to the hospital. He is listed as stable at Detroit Receiving Hospital.

Neighbors say there's a history of violent crime in the neighborhood. 

Today's shooting apparently stemmed from an argument about grass-cutting that got out of hand. 

Police did make an arrest at the scene.
