TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - A Tallahassee man is in jail after shooting at a vehicle that belonged to his child's mother, according to police.

David Lee Holmes, Jr. turned himself into jail Thursday for several outstanding warrants, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.

The Probable Cause Affidavit shows that prior to his jailing, police were dispatched to the 2600 Block of Old Bainbridge Road after several people called saying they heard gun shots.

Police say according to the victim, Holmes fired shots at Jade McKinnon, the mother of his child and her vehicle while McKinnon was holding the child.

Reports show that Holmes's sister called the victim asking is he could see his child before he turned himself over to police for his other warrants. Police say those warrants were for a previous battery against the victim and her vehicle.

The victim went outside to meet Holmes where reports say he became angry at her for reporting the battery resulting in the warrants for his arrest. She told Holmes she "believed he didn't care about his daughter's well-being as he has not been helping care for her". Holmes made threatening statements to the victim before pulling a handgun out of his pocket.

Reports say the victim grabbed the child to cover her even though she believed Holmes was pointing the gun at her, not the child. Police say he then fired two rounds at the victim's vehicle.

While officers were talking with the victim, Holmes turned himself into the jail for his outstanding warrants according to reports.

The officers spoke with Holmes about the incident and say he admitted to speaking with the victim but denied any type of altercation. When asked about the damage to the vehicle police say Holmes told them, "When you find a gun, come holler at me."

Holmes is being charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, carrying a concealed weapon, and firing a weapon into a vehicle in addition to his outstanding charges from previous incidents.
