    MS - Romeo, 30, & Savaan Smith, 4 mos, shot to death, Biloxi, 5 Dec 2008

    BILOXI, Miss. - UPDATE: 2:21 p.m. On December 5, 2008, officers of the Biloxi Police Department responded to a report of gun shots at Maison D'Orleans Apartments located in Biloxi.

    When the police got there, they discovered a 30-year-old man in the parking lot who had been shot to death. Police also found another woman who had also been shot, but only received minor injuries.

    The suspect kidnapped the couple's four-month-old baby out of the victim's car and fled the scene.

    Police were able to identify the person of interest and contacted her family. The family persuaded the suspect to go to the Biloxi Police Department. Her vehicle was found a short time later. The missing baby was found dead in the vehicle.

    Wow, unbelievable (well, not really...I've been reading her a while now). I wonder if she intended to only shoot the parents and maybe one was holding the baby and was shot. I know in our area there was a case of a home invasion. The shooters were aiming at one of the young men in the house and accidentally shot the baby that the grandma was holding. Doesn't make it okay but you would hope that no one would be so cruel as to shoot a defenseless baby.

    If she did intend to shoot the baby I wonder why she took the baby with her?

    The man was the husband or ex-husband of the suspect. They don't seem to know what the status of the marriage was. The baby was the man's infant daughter with another woman.

    Can't grasp that kind of hate. Prayers with the families of those lost.

    I have been following this story in the local paper. It is really quite sad, but I'm amazed by how much the locals are NOT talking about it. I live only a few miles from Biloxi, but when I mentioned it at work no one even knew about it.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    I wonder if the baby was still alive when she took it even though it may have been shot too. It's really hard to say. I don't know why she would want a baby that belonged to her husband and some other woman. Sounds like this woman said to herself "if I can't have him no one can." I hope we hear more about this case.
