Kidnapping Ends With Gun Shots

A 10-month-old baby is back in the care of its mother after being kidnapped Saturday night.

The Amarillo Police Department says a suspect broke into a unit at the Glenwood Apartments on South East 28th Street through a sliding glass door.

Once inside he forcibly took the baby from her mother.

According to witnesses, the suspect threatened to kill the baby.

The suspect is the mothers ex-boyfriend and the biological father.

Less than 15 minutes after the kidnapping call, police responded to a house on Dallas

Street on the report of a gun-shot victim.

Witnesses at this house say the same man arrived with the 10-month-old and had gun-shot wounds to his legs.

When officers arrived they took custody of the baby.

The suspect was taken to Northwest Texas Hospital and treated for his injuries.

The baby did not appear to be injured.

Detectives and CSI are still investigating the incidents.
