Authorities say a 20-year-old man has been arrested on charges related to the shooting of a 3-year-old girl in Detroit.

Police said Vernon Ray Coles of Detroit was arrested in Warren and charged Friday with two counts each of assault with intent to murder and felonious assault. He is expected to be arraigned Sunday at Detroit's 36th District Court.

Authorities say the girl was shot Tuesday after a neighborhood dispute escalated. She was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the chest, arm and leg but has since been released.

The Associated Press left messages Saturday to find out if Coles has an attorney.
