A Murfreesboro man has been arrested for shooting at a home multiple times with seven people inside, including a 15-month-old, on Saturday, June 27. 

Murfreesboro Police Department officers responded to a call where a man fired more than a dozen bullets at a home in the 500 block of Highland Avenue. The shooting occurred just after midnight Saturday. The bullets struck a vehicle parked at the home and several rounds hit the exterior of the home.

There were seven people inside, including a young child. Fortunately, no one was injured.

An MPD officer heard the gunshots. About a minute later, the officer conducted a traffic stop of the suspect's vehicle on East Sevier State and arrested 28-year-old Robert Alexander Dumas. Dumas (below) is facing seven counts of reckless endangerment.

Dumas remains behind bars at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center on an $56,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Rutherford County General Sessions Court June 30.
