Investigators say they have arrested one person in connection to an incident where two men fired into a family’s SUV injuring a 6-year-old girl.

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Investigators have arrested one person in connection to an incident where two men fired into a family’s SUV injuring a 6-year-old girl.

The North Charleston Police Department arrested Ronnell Davis and charged him with obstruction of justice. They say he was driving the SUV with his girlfriend and two children inside.

A judge set his bond for $75,000. Charleston County jail records indicate that his bond has been posted.

Police have not released exactly why he is being charged. According to authorities he is not one of the men who shot inside the car. The shooting suspects are at large.

Police released reports on the shooting that happened on Thursday on Dorchester Road near Church’s Chicken. The report says the family in the car was injured by the glass that was shattered by the bullets. They say Davis’ girlfriend was in the passenger seat and their two children were in the back seat.

Davis said he was on Dorchester Road waiting to make a turn when two unknown men approached his SUV and started beating on the door.

He told officers he did not know why the two suspects were at his vehicle.

The report says the two suspects fired shots in the car. David told police he drove his car away to a home to get another family member’s vehicle to take his 6-year-old girl to the emergency room. Davis said his SUV was possibly disabled due to the shooting.

The girlfriend reported that when they arrived at the grandmother’s home they noticed their daughter was shot. Police say the child had actually suffered injuries from shattered glass in the shooting.

Officers reported that several bullets had entered the front windshield and went through the back windshield of the SUV.

Authorities said all the people in the vehicle had cuts from glass and a female juvenile had a wound above her left eye. A report at the time states she was transported to MUSC in category one condition.
