Man shot in the head, expected to live

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A man is expected to live despite one bullet that went into his forehead and another that hit him in the chest Monday night.

This happened on Reading Road north of Losantiville Avenue in Roselawn.  The man was in front of one in a row of small apartment buildings when he was shot.  Police said it appeared that one bullet went in and out of his head, yet, and despite being in surgery and in critical condition, he was expected to live.

Police said quite few people were "earwitnesses" to the shooting, having heard the shots, but no one reported seeing it. 

A police captain didn't know if the man was from the area where the shooting happened or another part of town.  There is a history of recent many shootings along Reading Road in Roselawn, but the large majority of them happen in a stretch that includes several large bars that is a little further south on Reading Road.
