Cameras also caught the passenger of a white Honda Accord firing shots at Buford and the children as it drove by, but investigators said they determined the children were injured due to Buford allegedly shooting his gun.
On Sept. 26, Buford was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, reckless endangerment and reckless aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, all felonies, authorities said.
He was booked into the Metro Jail and was being held on a $100,000 bond.
