MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Bail has been set at $150,000 for the Minneapolis man charged with firing a gun that hurt a 5-year-old girl.
Marquell Johnson, 27, is accused in the drive-by shooting. Charges also say he had a gun when he wasn’t supposed to due to his lengthy criminal record.
Police say he fired the bullet that hit 5-year-old Jayda Holmes in the foot while she was sleeping. Martha Timberlake, Holmes’s mother, says the bullet went over her head before hitting her foot.
Jayda will enter kindergarten with a shattered foot. Doctors hope she will be out of a wheelchair in October.
