(WMC-TV) - A man named Charles Brown is behind bars after police say he opened fire at a father holding his infant son last week.

The victim told officers that Brown attacked him as he was returning home from the store with his nine-month-old son last Friday. The man told police the 55-year-old Brown punched him in the mouth and then fired several shots as he ran away.

The victim and his child made it back to their apartment without being injured. Inside the home, the man, his son, two other children and a woman hid in the apartment while Brown fired at least two more shots, according to court records. Police say one of the bullets hit the apartment's front door and another came through a bedroom window.

Fortunately, no one was injured.

Charles Brown is currently behind bars facing five counts of aggravated assault. He's being held on $350,000 bond.
