    CA - 1 year-old child fatally shot in face while inside her crib in Los Angeles

    Autumn Johnson


    Compton, California -
    There were about 10 gun shots — crack, crack, crack — and then a woman’s scream.

    “They shot my baby. They shot my baby.”

    A man came running outside, clutching an infant in his arms. Tears slicked his cheeks, a witness told the Los Angeles Times.

    The baby girl was named Autumn Johnson, according to NBC Los Angeles, and she later died at the hospital from a gunshot wound to her head. She was just a week past her first birthday.

    “It looks like somebody drove up and were shooting into the house at somebody else and the baby caught a stray round,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Corina told KTLA of the Tuesday night shooting in Compton, Calif. In a statement released early Wednesday, the sheriff’s department said that the shooting appears to be gang-related.

    Shootings are still too familiar in this city south of downtown Los Angeles, which has tried to move past its reputation as a byword for bloodshed. Fourteen people were shot and killed there in the past 12 months, according to a Los Angeles Times database — that’s roughly one death for every 7,000 people, more than twice the rate for Los Angeles County at large.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    The responding officers are to be commended for putting Little Autumn first! They weren't willing to wait for EMS, they transported her to the hospital themselves!!

    This NEVER should happen to our children!

    I hope the officers aren't disciplined for that.
    It happened another time with a happier outcome.

    Investigators believe the shooter wanted to hit the child's 24-year-old father, who has acknowledged being a member of a street gang, sheriff's Lt. John Corina said. "He was probably the intended target, and a stray bullet caught his daughter," Corina said, adding that the father was "somewhat cooperative" with detectives. His name was not released.


    so sad... Also have to wonder what is meant by referring to the father as 'somewhat cooperative' I speculate that is in reference to him admitting to be a gang member himself, but maybe he has a better idea of who is responsible for taking his daughter's life than he is admitting to. Such a sick world we live in. JMO.

    some more detailed info at the above link.
    The car was described as a newer model blue four-door Chevrolet Impala. Detectives believe the shooting was gang-related.


    Sheriff's Deputies say this is likely a gang related shooting and the father, Darrell, is a documented gang member.

    i hadnt seen his name released in the other articles I read although this is only a 1st name.

    Mini was in her crib, her mother Blanche nearby preparing a bottle for her when the bullets started flying into the converted garage where they lived.The little girl didn't stand a chance, taking a bullet to the head.
    For all intents and purposes, the gunman stood over her crib and shot her in the head.
    bbm-i wonder if this is meant literally or just more of a figure of speech?

    A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the killing of a 1-year-old girl in Compton, who was hit by an errant bullet in her crib last week, authorities said.

    Ray Howard Patterson was arrested Monday in connection with the Feb. 9 killing of Autumn Johnson, online booking records show. He was being held without bail and had a court date set for tomorrow.
    The girl was killed shot in the face and earlier this month in her Compton home.

    The news came as officials announced a $75,000 reward for information leading to a suspect.

    Los*Angeles County prosecutors on Wednesday declined to file charges against a 23-year-old man arrested earlier this week on suspicion of killing 1-year-old Autumn Johnson in Compton, a district attorney's spokeswoman said.

    Prosecutors have "asked for further investigation from the investigative agency," spokeswoman Sarah Ardalani said in an email.*Ardalani said the office would*not comment further.

    Evidently they did not have enough evidence according to the Prosecution.

    I hope they are able to find more factual information of who committed this crime and charge them accordingly.

    The NBCLA link had an embedded video posted on the link just upthread bit stated LEOs were still looking for the getaway driver and the Impala at the time Patterson was in custody.

    I can't imagine the frustration Autumn's family is feeling right now.



    Hoping for answers and progress towards justice soon.

    THAT 23 YR OLD SUSPECT BETTER LEAVE TOWN IMMEDIATELY. I think he will be shot if he sticks around.
