Police: Baby Shot In Head During Waco Drive-By
WACO, Texas (AP) — Police say a baby has been shot in the head and an adult wounded in a drive-by attack in a Central Texas neighborhood.
Waco police say nobody has been arrested over gunfire around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday that left several bullet holes in a home. Police are trying to determine what prompted the shootings.
Police say the 7-month-old victim has been transported to a hospital for surgery. Details on the infant’s condition were not immediately released. Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says a wounded man has injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
The baby was taken to a Waco hospital then flown to Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

Authorities did not immediately say why Mays was staying with the family.
