McCarthy says contrary to earlier reports, the baby’s father was not changing the baby’s diaper when the shooting happened.

“The baby was sitting in his lap in the driver’s seat and the shooter came from the sidewalk over his right shoulder,” said McCarthy.


McCarthy says 28-year Jonathon Watkins, who police believe was the intended target, has a significant criminal background but IS cooperating with police.
