Baby Wounded and Woman Dead After Being Shot


On Thursday evening, something truly heartbreaking happened. Police say that a young woman has died after being shot. A baby was found wounded from a gun shot wound with her as well in West Ahwatukee.


The authorities say that the woman was quite young, in her early twenties probably. She had been shot in the head and died later in the hospital that evening. The baby that was found suffered from a leg wound, the baby is in critical condition.


Authorities Find Dead Woman and Gun Shot Wounded Baby


Police aren’t sure if the baby was the woman’s child. Their identities have not been released at this time. It’s possible she could have been babysitting someone or perhaps the baby was indeed her own.


The authorities say that the two had been found on a foot path off 18th Avenue, north of Pecos Road. They were found around three o’clock on Thursday afternoon. What a tragic thing to happen upon. It’s hard to tell who killed them and why? Very sad.


A video of the area showed what looked like to be a few random items scattered along the dirt trail. Could this have been as simple as a robbery? Makes it so heartbreaking not knowing, and if it were for something as simple as a robbery. Who could be heartless enough to rob someone with a baby?


A resident in the area had hear the baby crying, they went to investigate and found the woman wound and the poor baby with gunshot wounds. They immediately called the police.


Authorities are searching for the shooter and hopefully witnesses. A motive for the shooting is not clear at this time.
