DETROIT (AP) -

Authorities say a man suspected in a shooting that wounded a 7-year-old boy in Detroit has turned himself in.

Broadcasters report the man surrendered Wednesday afternoon to police. The shooting was reported about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday on the city's east side.

Officer Nicole Kirkwood tells The Detroit News the man argued with the boy's mother on Monday and then returned and tried to visit, but the woman's brother blocked him.

Kirkwood says the man tried to shoot the woman's brother, but hit the boy who was outside with others at the time.

Police say the boy was taken to a hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
