At the time, the mother of the girl or her boyfriend would say if the gun was theirs.

Tuesday, a grand jury indicted Hugh Tyreece Bell on several charges including assault, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, intimidation, receiving a stolen firearm and tampering with physical evidence.

The 4-year-old did survive the shooting.
