A man suspected in the shooting of a 7-year-old girl has been arraigned on charges including; Assault with Intent to Murder, one count of Discharge in or at a Building Causing Injury and one count of Felony Firearm.

Jervonie Deandre Martin was indicted by a grand jury on May 6 in the case.

Martin is accused of firing shots into an apartment complex on May 1 around 10:30 p.m. in the 2900 block of Monterey in Detroit.

One of those shots struck a 7-year-old girl who was sleeping in her grandmother's home at the time.

She was treated for her injuries in the hospital and is now recovering at home.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy said, "The summer months are fast approaching. I sincerely hope that this case is not a precursor of things to come. Our innocents seem more often than not to be the recipients of this senseless and ridiculous violence.”

Martin received a $400,000 cash/surety bond. His next court date is set for 9:00 a.m. on June 28.
