BREAKING: 2nd baby shot dead in Atlanta on Monday

By 01/25/2022 9:28 AMNo Comments

The surge of gun violence in Atlanta has led to the death of a second baby on Monday afternoon.

The local police said a six-month-old baby died after he was by a bullet inside while sitting on a backseat of a car outside a Food Mart convenience store around 3 in the afternoon.

The mother of the victim said she was driving in the area when a bullet fatally hit her child.

Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant explained the mother and her baby were just victims of a crossfire when two people who are fighting nearby fired guns towards each other.

“This is painful. This one hurts — for a six-month-old to be riding down the street and become a victim to gun violence, random gun violence, between two people who can’t resolve a simple issue,” Bryant said.

A deeper investigation of the shooting incident is now underway.

Meanwhile, early this month a one-year-old girl died after she was shot by another child in her Atlanta home.

In the initial police investigation, the girl’s mother, Amaiya Dachanel Williams, left the kids alone in a room where she also kept her firearm.

Sources said the 21-year-old was arrested on Thursday for failing to secure her weapon.
