A Colerain Township man was arrested Friday after police said he fired bullets into a house where he had just left one of his children.

Dominique Battle, 27, is charged with five counts of felonious assault and two counts of endangering children.

According to a police report, the shooting happened in June on Lincoln Avenue.

Investigators said Battle was picking up his two children from their grandmother’s house when he got into a fight with someone there and left, but only took one of his children.

“(He) told the five remaining occupants (including his other child), ‘You know what’s coming next!” the report states.

Police said Battle then got into his vehicle and fired four rounds into the home while driving away. No serious injuries were reported.

Court records show Battle has a previous conviction for aggravated robbery for which he was sentenced to six years in prison.

He is being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $575,000 bond awaiting trial.
