Lincoln police went to the Belmont neighborhood Friday morning on a report of a 47-year-old man who was shot in the face with a pellet gun.

Capt. Jeri Roeder said at 8:07 a.m., officers went to the 1100 block of Knox Street. Roeder said the man who was shot, Nicholas Hansen, had non-life-threatening injuries.
