LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A $25,000 cash bond has been set for the man accused of shooting his 13-year-old relative in the face.

Davon Powell, 18, is charged with tampering with evidence, running away from police and assault.

Police say Powell was handling the gun recklessly when it went off inside a home on Rustic Way.

Investigators say Powell ran from the house and tossed the gun in some bushes.

The teenage girl who was shot had surgery Wednesday to remove a bullet from her neck.

Powell is due back in court on October 24.
