Update: Police arrested Brian Cloninger, 46, and charged him with injury to a child. His bail is set at $2.2 million. Here is the police report.

Dallas police reportedly are investigating the shooting of a child at a Lake Highlands apartment community near Royal and Abrams.

Police soon after arriving at the scene reportedly took a suspect into custody, according to witnesses.

[A witness, a resident at the apartment complex, told Fox 4‘s Natalie Solis that he heard what he assumed were  “fireworks” then saw his 7-year-old neighbor walking across the lot with blood gushing from his face. Another woman interviewed for the TV broadcast said the suspect was hanging around the complex yesterday.]

The boy was transported by ambulance from the scene. The police report has not been filed, but I will link to that when it is available and update when/if we lean new information.
