CENTER POINT, Ala. (AP) - Police say a Center Point man is under arrest after he fired shots at a car he said was driving too fast.

According to AL.com (https://bit.ly/2b6AXJg ) the Jefferson County sheriff’s chief deputy says a woman was driving along 20th Street NE on Tuesday evening when she passed a man walking. She heard two shots and then her passenger side window shattered. The woman’s 5-year-old daughter was injured by the glass. She was treated at the scene.

Darius Donnell Bennett fled but was later caught by a sheriff’s deputy in a nearby apartment complex. Police say the 21-year-old surrendered and admitted to firing at the car because it was driving too fast.

He is charged with two counts of attempted murder and unlawfully carrying a gun.

Bennett is being held at the Jefferson County jail without bond. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
