Pregnant mother killed trying to shield toddler from gunfire

Mom charged with murder after dropping 3-month-old onto pavement as she fights with another woman police

The boy later died and now his mother along with her friend Carneata Clark - who also allegedly lied about how he'd been hurt - have both been taken into custody.

She lost her balance and her grip on the baby then fought back, dropping him.

"It was reported to us that the baby had fallen from the caregivers arms and received the injuries", Lt. Freddie Williams, with the Moultrie Police Department, told WTXL.

Harrison reportedly took the baby to the Colquitt Regional Medical Center on Saturday, but the baby died later that day from injuries sustained during the fall.

Video of it shows Harrison cradling her son in one arm and approaching the other woman as they stand next to a auto in the parking lot.

Karen Harrison is charged with murder and child cruelty.

A mother charged in the murder of her own baby after she dropped her child during a fight will not be allowed to bond out of jail.

Surveillance footage showed the moment the baby fell from his mother's arms onto the pavement as onlookers jumped in to break up the brawl and pick up the baby from the ground. The other woman involved in the fight has not been charged, but officials say that more arrests could be made in the case.

It remains unclear what Harrison and the other woman were fighting about in the parking lot and if they were known to each other.

The other woman then swung a shopping bag full of goods to hit Harrison in the face.

Her 3-year-old toddler wasn't harmed and is being in the care of relatives, police say. Two women, one of them Harrison, were standing by the auto when they started arguing.
