CBS/WOIO) CLEVELAND, Ohio - Keep off the grass, and stay away from my car...or I'll shoot?!

A Cleveland man is accused of shooting an 11-year-old girl who was among some children playing on his front lawn Friday night, reports say.

Charles DuBose, 55, DuBose reportedly got mad because Ivhan'e Merritt and another girl were playing too close to his car, according to CBS affiliate WOIO.

The station reports that DuBose yelled at them to stop playing around his vehicle, but they didn't. He then fired one shot at the kids, striking Merritt in the upper torso. Merritt was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, but was released Sunday night.

Shamarra Hall, 10, said DuBose became upset when one of the children in the group walked across a part of his lawn and another bumped into his car, reported Foxnews.com.

"We started running and then that's when my friend Ivhan`e goes 'I got shot, I got shot,' and we thought she was playing until she fell," Hall told the station.

The girl's mother, Aquadea Merritt, said the bullet grazed her daughter's liver.

The 11-year-old was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, but was released Sunday night, reports WOIO.

The allegedly trigger-happy Dubose plead not guilty Monday. He was being held on $250,000 bond.

Not a very nice person at all. Let's hope he gets locked up for a long, long time.

Wonder if he put down his crack pipe to get to his gun, or grabbed it by his other hand?
