Bullet hitting multiple actors instead of one

As the title says, I'm having trouble getting my projectile to hit only one 'enemy' actor instead of all of them when they are bunched up in a group.

Currently, I have a rule in the Bullet actor stating that if it collides with an Enemy actor to destroy itself.
I have a similar rule for the Enemy actor where it destroys itself if it comes in contact with the Bullet.
Problem is that when the bullet hits a few enemy actors that occupy the same space in my 2D world they all get destroyed instead of one.

I know I could set the enemy actors to collide with each other so that they would not overlap and be able to be in the same place as other enemy actors but I do want them to overlap and group together.

Would having them spawn in different layers solve my problem? Is there even a solution to my problem?

    Create a game attribute called game.destroyable and set it to true

    Try this on the enemy actor:

    When actor overlaps or collides with actor [bullet] AND attribute game.destroyable=true
         
         timer after 0.1 seconds [check run to completion]
              change attribute game.destroyable to true
    change attribute game.destroyable to false
         destroy actor

    And then destroy the bullet actor when it collides with the enemy actor.
