The victim, who was holding his four-month-old child at the time, suffered wounds to his legs, groin and arm and was transported to a hospital for treatment, according to officers. The child was not injured.

Detectives determined the shooting happened during an apparent argument inside of the apartment.

Arrest warrants were quickly issued for Sullivan, who lives in Michigan City, Indiana, on charges of attempted criminal homicide and felony child endangerment.

Sullivan was booked into the Metro jail Tuesday afternoon on those charges. His bond was set at $400,000.
