According to the prosecutor’s office, Detroit police were dispatched to a shooting at a home in the 9800 block of Appoline Street in Detroit on April 14 around 11:20 p.m.

Police say that an argument between the defendant and the 25-year-old mother of the victim escalated, and then he fired a rifle three times, striking the child on the left side of her back.

The child was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
