By Daniel Arkin, Staff Writer, NBC News

Police in Alabama are searching for a gunman who shot and killed a young mother as she held her 10-day old son on her front stoop in the middle of the day, authorities said.

Sheri Williams, 24, was standing in the doorway of her Gate City, Alabama, apartment just before 1 p.m. Monday when a bullet intended for a nearby man fatally struck her in the face, according to Birmingham Police Department spokesman Sgt. Johnny Williams.

Officials say two unidentified men were involved in a verbal altercation at a grocery store roughly 100 yards away from Williams’ apartment complex. After the conflict escalated, one of the men chased the other down the street and fired a gun, Sgt. Williams said.

Williams was hit by a stray bullet from that altercation, authorities said. She stumbled back into the first floor of her apartment and fell on a couch – with her infant son still in her arms, according to Sgt. Williams.

Police pronounced Williams dead at the scene. Her baby was not hurt.

Authorities are scouring Gate City and surrounding areas for the gunman and the man with whom he argued Monday afternoon, according to Sgt. Williams.

“We are utilizing everything we can at this point to find everyone involved,” he said.

Williams’ 8-year-old daughter was at school during the shooting, but her 4-year-old son and her mother were in the apartment, The Birmingham News reported.

I cringe every time I watch the news and an innocent child is involved in adults' hostilities.
