MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — The man accused of shooting his 9-year old daughter on Sunday on Interstate 10 has his bond set at over one million dollars.

Prosecutors say Hooper chased another car for seven miles on I-10. They say he rammed the car, shot out a tire, then pulled up to the car and fired multiple shots into it. One of those shots hit his daughter in the shoulder. Robert Hooper faces five attempted murder charges for the November 25th incident.

Hooper’s bond was set at $200,000 for each attempted murder charge, on top of more than $80,000 bond set for various charges including criminal mischief, shooting into an occupied vehicle and other charges stemming from the incident. Police believe the incident started with a custody exchange.

Prosecutors believe Hooper has access to another weapon and is a danger to the community, as well as a flight risk.

Hooper has previously been convicted on a robbery charge.
