CENTER POINT, Ala. (AP) — Jefferson County sheriff’s officials say a woman who was babysitting her friend’s four children has died after being shot by the children’s father.
Sgt. Jack Self tells Al.com the woman was babysitting Saturday morning when the children’s 32-year-old father came to the home and got into an argument with her. Details on the nature of the argument weren’t immediately available.
Authorities say the man got a gun from his car, went back inside the house and shot the woman. Authorities say one of the children who was home at the time of the shooting called police after the man left.
Self says the man has been taken in for questioning. The identities of the victim and suspect haven’t been released.
