Mother shot holding baby: Alabama mother gunned down holding her 10-day-old son

Mother shot holding baby: Alabama mother gunned down holding her 10-day-old son, In another example of violent gun crime, a 24-year-old Gate City, Ala., mother was shot and killed in the doorway of her own apartment as she was holding her infant son, only ten days old.

NBC News carried the April 30 tragic story of Sheri Williams, who was standing in the doorway of her apartment just before 1 p.m. Monday afternoon when a bullet, intended for a nearby man, fatally struck her in the face.

Police are searching for the killer, according to Birmingham Police Department spokesman Sgt. Johnny Williams.

Officials say a skirmish between two unidentified men at a nearby grocery store spilled over when the one man began chasing the other. The conflict escalated, and one of the men chased the other down the street and fired a gun, Sgt. Williams said.

Williams stumbled back into the first floor of her apartment and fell on a couch – with her infant son still in her arms, according to Sgt. Williams.

Police pronounced Williams dead at the scene. Her baby was not hurt in the shooting.

Authorities are scouring Gate City and surrounding areas for the gunman and the man with whom he argued Monday afternoon, according to Sgt. Williams.

“We are utilizing everything we can at this point to find everyone involved,” Sgt. Williams said.
