    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A man told Little Rock police were mistakenly targeted by three men early Sunday morning while attempting to buy marijuana.

    According to the police report, Isaac Tyler said he and another man pulled up to a house on 13th Street. Three unknown men came out from between the houses and began shooting into the vehicle.

    Tyler said the driver then sped off, at which point one of the shooters reportedly called the driver on his cell phone. The shooter told the driver that he and Tyler had been mistaken for someone else and were not the intended targets.

    Tyler said he was struck in the back of the head during the shooting. According to the report, the driver dropped him off at a Little Rock hospital, then left the area.

    A piece of metal was extracted from the back of the victim's head, but his injuries were not life-threatening.

    Police are still investigating.
