Mom of 3-year-old shot and killed in Flint remembers her son and seeks justice
A Flint mother was sitting in her car when she says a bullet went through the window of her vehicle striking her three-year-old in the head last Friday night near North Dort Highway and Carpenter Road.
The mom, who does not want to be identified, says three-year-old Landon was shot Friday night and died the next day at a local hospital.
Landon was sitting next to his twin sister in his car seat when he was shot.
Landon's step-dad tells us minutes before the shooting he was at a store when he encountered a man who he says he has had an ongoing argument with.
The step-dad, who also does not want to be named, tells us he and the man at the store did not exchange any words.
The step-dad tells us the shots were fired when he got into the vehicle with his fiance and the two children.
"I heard the bullet and I looked back and I am like they got my baby, they shot my baby and I held him up to me and said get to the hospital as fast as you could," said Landon's mom.
The suspect was arrested Saturday but has not yet been arraigned.
