Cleveland police confirmed that Anderson was arrested at 7:35 p.m. on July 14. According to court records, Anderson has been charged with felonious assault. 

On Thursday, Cleveland police say a 9-year-old girl was shot in the leg. A 37-year-old woman was also shot in the leg and a 33-year-old man was shot in the arm.
