HOUSTON (AP) — A security guard is charged in a Houston shooting that left a teenage theft suspect wounded and also injured a nearby 6-year-old girl who was struck by an errant bullet.

KTRK-TV reports 28-year-old Christopher Bradley appeared in court Wednesday, accused of firing the shot that struck the girl Monday as she sat in a car in the drive-thru of a McDonald’s restaurant.

Police say Bradley is a security guard who confronted the teenager after a cellphone was stolen from a T-Mobile store.

Authorities say Bradley opened fire when the teenager started to run, striking the teen several times and also wounding the girl. The teen is expected to survive.

The TV station reports the 6-year-old underwent a three-hour surgery to remove the bullet.

Bradley is charged with aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
