A MURDER investigation is underway after a six-month-old baby was shot and killed in Atlanta Monday afternoon.
The shooting occurred at a Food Mart around 3pm, according to Atlanta Police. There was an altercation between two adults that ended in gunfire.
Police say the child was caught in the cross-fire and was not the intended target.
The baby was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital but was unable to be saved by doctors.
Maintenant, police are focusing their efforts on finding the person responsible.
“Our investigators are working leads right now and hopefully we can bring this case to resolution relatively soon,” said Atlanta Police Chief Rodney Bryant.
Mayor Andre Dickens was at the scene as cops gathered evidence. He addressed the media.
“These children are bearing the burden and pain of adults who are choosing guns to settle disputes,” said Dickens.
“These children are bearing this burden with their lives and I’m here to ask, and to demand, that it stop right now.”
Three babies have been shot in Atlanta in January 2022. This incident marks the second child that has lost their life to gun violence in the city.
