A 28-year-old man is in custody in the shooting of a 2-year-old girl on Detroit's east side.

The Detroit News and WXYZ-TV report that the man was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Highland Park.

Police say people had gathered near a library and car wash to celebrate the July Fourth holiday. Shots were fired after an altercation.

WXYZ-TV reports that Zanyrah Taylor was sitting in a vehicle with an uncle and two other children when she was shot.

She was listed Tuesday in critical condition at a hospital.

Detroit police also were investigating the Monday afternoon shooting of a 14-year-old boy who was wounded as he was walking with friends and encountered another group of people. He was listed in temporary serious condition.
