Perteet allegedly tried to kill the girl during a marijuana sale on Dec. 5. At the time of the shooting, he was on bail and wearing an electronic monitoring device for a separate gun case and a separate drug case, the outlet reported.

During a shootout with another man in March, the station reported that Perteet was wounded, and an 11-year-old girl died from injuries she suffered after being struck by a bullet the other man fired.

Perteet was charged with felony gun possession and released on $7,500 bail and electronic monitoring, the outlet reported. When he was charged two months later with manufacture-delivery of narcotics, a violation of his bond, the report said that he was released without additional bail.
