Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A man accused of shooting of a child in a Kroger parking lot made his first court appearance on Friday.

The judge granted Chazrel Burton a cash bond of $500,000.

Police said on June 26, Burton snatched a gold chain off a man outside the Kroger on Memorial Drive.

A good Samaritan spotted Burton outside the Kroger and tried to stop him. Police said that's when he allegedly fired off more than a dozen shots.

One of the bullets struck the good Samaritan's 2-year-old son who was in the family's car with his mother.

Burton remains in the DeKalb County Jail currently because he has not made bond.
