Investigators were still searching for Monroe on Sunday. He faces charges of aggravated battery, attempted first degree murder, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, shooting into a vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

“A verbal dispute between two grown men should never end with a child being shot, and I pray for the child’s quick recover,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister.
