COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A man has been arrested in a shooting at a Columbia apartment that seriously injured a 4-year-old girl.

Marcus Gantt was arrested Wednesday. The 21-year-old faces charges of attempted murder, unlawful carrying of a pistol and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Officers say Gantt intentionally shot at a Dodge Charger, trying to hit the people inside. Police say they think shots may also have been fired from inside the car.

Police say Zahara Walker was inside her home watching television when she was hit by a bullet from that gunfight. Police have not said if they think Gantt fired that shot.

Police say Gantt is a suspected gang member, and officers think the shooting is gang-related. The girl is expected to recover.
