A southwest Atlanta family says a bullet flew through their wall and landed in their baby’s crib during a 15-minute shootout at their apartment complex.
On Tuesday, one witness said she saw a green car pull up, and three men jumped out of the car. She said they started firing, and another group of men returned fire.
WSB-TV's Craig Lucie found bullets in the walls and in cars at the complex. The mother of a 6-month-old got emotional thinking about what could have happened. Saquainda Anderson said she knows she could have lost her child.
“That could have been my baby’s life. And you can’t get that back worth nothing,” she said.
Anderson said she was only gone for about 30 minutes. She returned to find residents in the streets and police investigating after bullets flew over people’s heads and into the sides of apartments. Anderson found one of them and took it to an officer.
“I just found (the bullet) in my baby's bed. That could have been my baby in the bed. He told me, ‘Thank God it wasn’t your bed,” Anderson said.
The bullet came through the wall, hit the back of the bed and ricocheted before it landed in the crib.
“Everybody was shooting back and forth. It was like a real shootout, probably for 30 minutes,” Nicole Johnson said.
She said shootings happen at the complex all the time.
Less than two months ago, a man was shot and killed. While Atlanta police said no one was hit this time, Anderson said another child was nearly shot.
So far, there are no reports of arrests in Tuesday's shooting.Wed, 20 Aug 2014 05:02:01 -0700
A standoff and hostage situation has stretched into a second day in a Chicago suburb.
Police said two children and a woman are being held hostage in Harvey, Illinois, according to NBC Chicago.
Originally, 6 children were taken hostage, but four had been released overnight NBC Chicago reported. One of the children released has a breathing problem. A SWAT team member rescued him from a porch after gunmen released him, Fox News reported.
The standoff started Tuesday afternoon when police were called to a break-in at a home, the Chicago Tribune reported.
The suspects opened fire on the police as they approached, Harvey spokesman Sean Howard said in the Tribune's article.
The town's mayor said one officer was grazed by a bullet. A second was wounded in the elbow.
About 100 residents were evacuated, as well as a nearby school.Wed, 20 Aug 2014 04:34:05 -0700
A North Carolina couple was arrested Tuesday after police said they found a 2-year-old wandering outside with feces all over him.
Police arrested Michael Banks and Crystal Knight of Landis on suspicion of child neglect.
Police said that when they arrived at the home, the child was running around the yard without any clothes on, and the couple was inside sleeping.
“As we went inside, we found the parents were asleep in the back bedroom. They weren't watching the child at all,” said Detective Shane Safrit.
Police said the Department of Social Services placed the child with another family member.Wed, 20 Aug 2014 03:43:43 -0700 News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
