AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- A suspect has been indicted after deputies say

Marquie Gunter was indicted on charges of murder, aggravated assault family violence, possession of a firearm, and others. Deputies say he was in an argument with his girlfriend when he opened fire in the doorway of a home, hitting 2-year-old Ja'Ziah Pollard.

It's still unclear whether Gunter was aiming at Ja'Ziah, her mother, or something else.

Gunter was not even supposed to be around kids due to his conviction on child molestation charges.
