Police say they originally received a call around 11:30 a.m. where a woman reported that she escaped after being held hostage for several hours by her child’s father and her child could be in danger.

Officials say the man does not live at the home with the woman and baby.

When police arrived at that home, they heard gunfire from inside and proceeded to enter the home, where they located a 6-month-old with several gunshot wounds. At least one officer fired a gunshot toward the suspect. It’s unclear if the man was shot or not.

The 6-month-old was airlifted to the hospital with serious injuries. The mother also reportedly suffered minor injuries.

Police say the infant was taken into surgery Friday afternoon at the hospital.
