WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - A 29-year-old Wichita man has been charged in connection to a drive-by shooting that injured a 6-year-old girl earlier this month. 

The Wichita Police Department said Monday that Nicholas Henry was charged Friday.

Sedgwick County Jail records show Henry was booked on May 8 for domestic battery, battery, violation of a protection order and a probation violation. The counts related to the shooting, which were added two days later, include aggravated assault, criminal discharge of a firearm and criminal possession of a firearm by a felon. His bonds total $500,000.

The shooting happened at around 9 p.m. Sunday, May 7 in the 100 block of South Mt. Carmel, near Douglas and Sheridan. Officers were completing paperwork in the area when they heard around 10 gunshots. 

Lt. Steve Thornton said the officers arrived on scene to find a girl who had suffered a shrapnel wound in her right arm. She was treated at a local hospital. 

The Wichita Police Department learned a maroon vehicle drove by and shot randomly at the house.

Police Chief Joseph Sullivan was at the scene that night and said, "I can't think of a more cowardly act (than to) drive down the street and randomly fire a gun into a house. Not only was the targeted house hit with a woman and child inside, but a house next door was hit with more children inside. I thank God they weren't hit. We strongly suggest that (the suspect) turn himself in."
