A baby was shot in the head during a heated argument between the parents.
OLUMBIA, Tenn. — A Columbia man is wanted on four counts of attempted murder, accused of firing into a car occupied by his girlfriend and three children, all under the age of three.
According to Columbia Police, 21-year-old Kobia Eugene Lloyd and his 22-year-old girlfriend were arguing in their car in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Hallmark Drive.
Police say Lloyd got out and his girlfriend attempted to drive away. Investigators say Lloyd jumped on the car and fired a single round through the car’s roof.
The bullet missed the woman driving, but reportedly hit an 8-month-old little girl in a car seat behind the driver’s seat, striking her in the head.
Police say the man fled with the gun and the woman drove her child to the ER at Maury Regional Medical Center while calling for help.
Unthinkable, Unfathomable and outrageous to think that a grown man, arguing with his girlfriend would so recklessly discharge a firearm in a car filled with children. Absolutely zero disregard for human life.
