Baby shot in crib in US

11 February 2016, 10:03

Los Angeles - Los Angeles police were on the hunt Wednesday for two men wanted in connection with the killing of a one-year-old girl who was shot while lying in her crib.

Authorities said they suspect that the baby's father, a known member of a local street gang, may have been the target of the attack that took place late Tuesday in the city of Compton, south of downtown Los Angeles.

Witnesses reported seeing a gunman fire into a converted garage where Autumn Johnson and her parents lived.

Police rushed the baby, who was struck in the head, to a nearby hospital but she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.

"It looks like somebody drove up and were shooting into the house at somebody else and the baby caught a stray round," Lieutenant John Corrina told the local KTLA station.

Compton is considered one of the most violent cities in the Los Angeles area.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the city had 475 violent crimes, including eight homicides, in the last six months.
