Detroit – A 21-year-old Detroit man has been charged in a shooting that wounded an 8-year-old girl who was being driven to school by her mother.

Damond Reeves was arraigned Saturday on four counts of assault with intent to murder, carrying a concealed weapon and other charges.

Police have said that a man apparently started shooting at random Friday morning in the parking lot of a west side Detroit gas station after asking people for a cigarette.

The girl was struck in the arm as she and her mother waited at a nearby traffic light. Another vehicle was hit by gunfire, but no other injuries were reported.

Reeves is being held on a $200,000 bond. An April 3 probable cause conference has been scheduled, followed by an April 10 preliminary examination.
