The child survived but had a bullet removed from his head.
Police said Wright is in Fulton County Jail after being arrested Friday.

The 3-year-old was hospitalized and is expected to recover. The family says the toddler’s brother was uninjured.
Javon Jewell’s grandfather, Regis Yates, said a bullet was removed from the child’s head. His 3-year-old grandson was treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
“He was real lucky,” Yates said.
