A stray bullet hit a 36-year-old man in the head at a San Diego brewery after piercing a wall, California police reported.

The customer’s injuries were not life-threatening, but cops found another man dead in a nearby apartment following a standoff with the accused gunman, police said in a news release.

Police responded to a 911 call at 7:40 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, reporting a Border X Brewing customer had been hit by a stray bullet in the Barrio Logan neighborhood, KNSD reported.

“All customers and employees are safe,” the brewery’s owner wrote on a local Facebook group, according to the station.

The injured man was taken to a hospital while police searching the neighborhood spotted someone on the floor inside a nearby apartment, the release said.

They also saw a man walking around the apartment who at one point brandished a firearm. As police negotiated with the man, they say they heard a shot inside the apartment.

At 11 p.m , the 45-year-old man surrendered and police found a 33-year-old man dead on the floor inside the apartment, the release said.

The dead man’s name has not been released, but KFMB reported he is the nephew of the accused gunman.

An investigation into the shootings continues, police said.

They ask that anyone with information call 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
