A man allegedly fired over a dozen rounds Saturday at a house with seven people inside, including a 15-month old child, police said.

The Murfreesboro Police Department (MPD) says the shooting happened at a home in the 500 block of Highland Avenue just after midnight Saturday. The bullets struck a vehicle parked at the home and several rounds hit the exterior of the home. There were seven people inside, including the child. No one was injured.

An MPD officer heard the gunshots. About a minute later, the officer conducted a traffic stop of a suspect’s vehicle on East Sevier Street. Robert Alexander Dumas, 28, was charged with seven counts of reckless endangerment.

Dumas was held at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on a $56,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in Rutherford County General Sessions Court Tuesday.
