Al Jelinski. During the fight, Bulloch allegedly picked up a knife and threw it at her brother, but he ducked, Jelinski said. The blade ended up striking the 3-year-old in the head.
Paramedics rushed the little girl to Memorial University Medical Center with what Jelinski described as serious injuries.
Bulloch was booked into the Chatham County jail. Charges were not clear as of late Wednesday night.
One injured in shooting
At least one person was injured after being shot Wednesday afternoon across the street from a West Chatham neighborhood daycare center, according to Savannah-Chatham police.
About noon, metro police were called to the intersection of Augusta Avenue and Eagle Street on a report of a shooting. Metro police spokeswoman Gena Moore said at least one person was taken to Memorial University Medical Center with injuries.
Other details on the case were not available, Moore said.
Officers at the scene said the victim was standing in front of a business when a vehicle drove by and shots were fired. Children enrolled in a daycare center across the street from the shooting were playing outside but did not notice anything, police said.
A woman at the daycare center declined to comment.
CrimeStoppers tip leads to gun charges
A man already convicted on theft charges was arrested Tuesday on drugs and weapons charges with the help of a tip made to CrimeStoppers, according to Savannah-Chatham police.
Police received the tip about drugs being sold from a home in the 1200 block of S.E. 36th Street, said Gena Moore, metro police spokeswoman. An investigation determined a man identified as 27-year-old Omar Hasheem Barton was possibly involved.
Georgia corrections records show Barton is on parole after serving just over a year in prison on charges that include theft by receiving stolen property, criminal damage and possession of tools for the commission of a crime.
Barton's parole officer invited metro officers to make a home visit, where a pistol, more than 13 ounces of marijuana and $9,000 were found, Moore said.
Barton was booked into the Chatham County jail on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of tools for the commission of a crime and a parole violation.
