Tennessee Mom Accidentally Shoots Baby While Aiming For The Father
A baby was caught in the crossfire between her parents In Tennessee and is now recovering after she was “accidentally” shot by her mother. Naturally, no charges have been charged.
Murfreeboro police on Sunday night responded to a report of a shot fired.

According to police, they believe the mother pulled out the gun during a heated argument with her boyfriend, who is the father of her 14-month-old daughter.
“The two were involved in a verbal and then physical confrontation with the use of deadly force,” Kyle Evans with the Murfreesboro Police Dept. said.
Police said the woman fired a single round at her boyfriend and in a bizarre twist the same bullet hit both the child and her father.
News Channel 5 reports, “The police incident report showed the bullet hit the boyfriend in the groin then traveled through him and struck their one-year-old child, who was sitting several yards away, in the rear-end.”
“It’s the innocent survivors that get hurt that really get your heartstrings going,” Kim Reynolds, a domestic abuse counselor in Murfreesboro said.
“Was she fighting back? Was he an abuser?” Reynolds wondered.
The baby was rushed to a local children’s hospital and is expected to be okay.
The father’s condition is not known at this time.
Police are still investigating whether this is a case of self-defense or an aggravated assault.
