Woman shot in buttocks after domestic dispute over baby

Woman shot in overnight domestic dispute

DECATUR, Ga.- One woman is in the hospital Tuesday morning after being shot during a domestic dispute over a 7-month-old. 

According to DeKalb police, the incident began when a woman arrived at her ex-boyfriend's house wanting to take her baby.

When the father refused, police say the mother called her male friend who got involved in the dispute. 11Alive was told the two men got into an argument.

One of the men fired off several rounds at a parked car in front of a home on the street while driving away from the scene. 

The suspect  fired more shots into a group of people. It was then that a 22-year-old female was shot in the buttocks. She was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Investigators learned the shooting victim is not the baby's mother. The male friend and infant's mother also have a child together.

The male friend is the only shooting suspect in the incident.
