Jolly is accused of shooting into another vehicle Saturday at East 116th Street and Union Avenue at around 11 p.m. 

Starla Love, who was in the vehicle with other relatives when the shooting happened,  talked to the FOX 8 I-Team. “He was trying to kill us. There was no doubt about it. Just came close to us, blocked us in, said we hit his car or almost hit his car, and then he started shooting at us.”

Love was hit in the leg with a bullet and glass. Her 6-month-old nephew was shot in the back while in his car seat.

Both are expected to recover.
