Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Charles Feiler, 50, (DOB: 05/15/1970), of Detroit, in connection with the non-fatal shooting of his seven-year-old daughter.

On April 14, 2021, at approximately 11:20 p.m., Detroit police were dispatched to a shooting at a residence in the 9800 block of Appoline Street in Detroit. Upon arrival, officers discovered the defendant running inside his home. The defendant eventually turned himself in after refusing to come out for several hours and was arrested at the Appoline location on April 15, 2021. It is alleged that an argument between Defendant Feiler and the mother of the victim, 25, of Detroit, escalated, and the defendant fired a rifle three times, striking the child on the left side of her back. The child was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Charles Feiler has been charged with five counts of Assault with Intent to Murder, five counts of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm, one count of Second Degree Child Abuse, one count of Felon in Possession, five counts of Felonious Assault, and 17 counts of Felony Firearm. * He was arraigned on April 17, 2021 in 36th District Court and given a $500,000 cash/surety bond.

*The charges are allegations and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
