    On Aug. 19, Summerville got into an argument with a 20-year-old man in East New York and shot him in the leg, according to police.

    The bullet traveled through the man's thigh and grazed a one-year-old boy in the knee. 

    Both victims were taken to area hospitals in stable condition, authorities said.

    It wasn't immediately known if Summerville had a lawyer who could comment on the case.
