A two-year-old baby was beaten with a gun during a carjacking in Memphis.
Police say four male suspects approached a man driving a 2008 Mercedes Benz and ordered him to get out of the car. The victim obeyed orders and then turned to get his two-year-old child out of the back seat.
Police say that’s “when one of the male suspects attempted to strike the victim with the handgun but struck the two-year-old child with the handgun.”
“The male suspects fled in the victim’s vehicle,” police said.
Police were able to recover the car as well as arrest the 17-year-old suspect who beat the baby with the gun.
The suspect was charged as a juvenile – but he should’ve been charged as an adult.
It’s time for Memphis parents to stop raising their children to behave like animals.
