(KFYI News) — Chandler police have arrested the man suspected of shooting a gun at a tattoo shop on Monday, after an argument between the suspect and the tattoo shop owner.

According to police, 23-year-old Michael Hart got into the disagreement with the owner/operator of Damaged Ink Tattoos at 590 N. Alma School Rd.  The shop owner asked Hart to come back later after he sobered up.  

Investigators say Hart and two other men then went out to his car, got a gun, and fired toward the tattoo shop.  However, the bullets went through the front window of Paisano's Barber Shop next door.

A surveillance video from inside the barber shop shows a four-year-old girl sitting in a chair by the front window when bullets came through the glass.  The bullets were at her head level, with one bullet flying by each side of her head.  The girl jumps up and runs toward the back of the shop.

She suffered minor injuries from broken glass debris.

On Tuesday afternoon, officers found Hart at his residence.  He tried to flee, but was caught and arrested.

Hart was booked into jail on six counts, including aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, endangerment, and possession of a gun by a prohibited possessor.
