UPDATED: Saturday February 16, 2013 7:12 PM

A southwest Columbus man was released from Mount Carmel West Hospital on Saturday after suffering a gunshot wound to the head.

A bullet grazed Christopher Gibson's skull as he was sleeping inside his Post Oak Ct. home around 9:20 a.m. on Friday.

"It came through the wall, and it grazed right up the side of my head," Gibson said. "I heard a pop. I was covered in blood. And I didn't know what had happened."

The average adult has 10 to 12 units of blood in their body. Gibson said doctors told him he lost four units of blood.

"Every nurse and doctor, they came in and said 'I don't see how you're still here. It's just a miracle,'" Gibson said.

Police believed the shooting was random. They had not made any arrests in the case as of Saturday.
