A Texas mother making a quick stop at a gas station had no idea her baby would be shot in the head just moments later.
The woman’s 1-year-old son was recovering Friday after a police officer confronting an armed suspect fired multiple shots, killing the accused carjacker and accidentally striking the innocent child, authorities said.
Police said the officer may not have realized the infant was in the back seat during Wednesday night’s incident in Southwest Houston. The 15-year veteran of the city’s police department, who was identified only as E. Garza, has been placed on administrative leave as the agency launches an investigation into the shooting.
“The most important thing right here is, for our entire city, to pray for this 1-year-old and that mother,” said Troy Finner, executive assistant chief for the city’s police department.
“Can you imagine? She’s pumping gas, probably coming from work or whatever... and has to go through this. And now she’s in the hospital and we’re all praying for that baby,” Finner told reporters at a news conference.
