A 22-year-old man has turned himself into Detroit police after A 7-year-old boy was shot on Detroit's east side.

Police say the boy, who was shot in the thigh, is in surgery. He is expected to live, but is listed in critical because of blood loss and his age.

It happened in the area of Mack and Fairview. Police say it was triggered by a domestic dispute between the suspect and the boy's mother.

Police say he came back Tuesday with multiple guns - including an assault rifle - and opened fire. Officers say he fired more than seven shots.
