BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Police in Alabama are asking for the public's help in finding the gunman who fatally shot a woman who was holding her 10-day old son.
Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams says the victim, identified as 24-year-old Sherri Williams, was holding her baby and standing in the doorway of an apartment in the Gate City neighborhood when shots rang out Monday afternoon.
Officials say two men at a nearby store got into a fight. One of the men chased the other down the street and fired a gun as he ran.
Authorities say Williams was hit by a stray bullet and was pronounced dead at the scene
