In the aftermath of the incident, at least a dozen members of the victim’s family congregated outside of Comer.

One relative, who did not wish to provide their identity, stated that all they had heard was that the infant had been shot while in the car.

A woman yelled to a police officer stationed near the entrance to the emergency room of the hospital, “She got shot in the head.” “She got shot in the head!”

A weeping woman yelled into the phone, “I hope y’all capture whoever did this,” as she sobbed into the receiver. “That damned baby’s life was taken by you.”

A nurse at Comer observed emergency medical personnel transporting the child to the facility for medical attention.

Jackie, the nurse, who declined to provide her last name, stated, “In all of my 61 years of life, I have never in my entire life seen anything like this.”

The nurse stated that three of her own children had been shot at parties, and two of those children had been murdered by shooting, while the third had been left paraplegic.

She stated, “Until you’ve had your own heart shattered, you’ll never truly understand what it’s like to go through anything like that.”

A victim advocate was told by the mother of the child who was shot that the child was on her way home when the incident occurred.

“I had a conversation with the mother. Yes, she seems to be in a lot of distress “remarked Andrew Holmes, a member of the emergency response team. “That is a baby that is currently five months old. She carried and fed that baby for nine months when she was pregnant. To fire that weapon and endanger the life of a kid would require a damn idiot at the very least.”

Holmes brought to the attention of those responsible the presence of a number of POD cameras in the area, any one of which may have filmed the incident and may lead to the apprehension of those involved.

“I sincerely hope that you do not have any children of your own. Because in that case, you shouldn’t bother trying to get some rest at night; rather, you should just flip yourself around in this position and remind yourself that you always get to see your child before bed. And you did remove the child that belonged to this mother, “he continued. “The infant has been put to rest for the time being, but there is not going to be any peace with that family for the rest of their lives.”
