It wasn't immediately clear if McCray has an attorney.

Police say 32-year-old Kenyetta Barnes was arguing with McCray Tuesday in a bedroom when he pulled out a handgun and opened fire. They say 2-year-old Ahmiyah was standing next to her mother and suffered a leg wound.

The woman's 11-year-old son, 13-year-old daughter and 18-year-old brother were in the Pontiac home's living room and not injured. Police say they aren't McCray's children.
