Startling Video Shows Suspect Pulling A Gun On A Baby

A startling video shows a suspect drawing his gun on a man holding a baby inside a gas station convenience store this week.

Detroit Police on Monday shared still images and video related to an aggravated assault investigation stemming from an incident that happened at approximately 5:50 p.m. Sunday.

The video shows the suspect walking toward the gas station with both hands visible. He passed through the parking lot by another man who had just finished pumping gas and got back into his SUV without acknowledging the suspect.

When the suspect reached the convenience store, he opened the door and pulled a gun from his waistband.

Video taken from different vantage points inside the store shows the suspect pointing the firearm at a man who was standing only a few feet away with a baby sleeping on his shoulder.

The man reacts quickly by throwing his arm up and trying to take the gun. The suspect, still holding the gun, backed out of the store and is seen standing in the lot fiddling with the weapon.

Investigators believe the man’s quick thinking and quick blow to the gun may have caused the weapon to stall.

The baby is just 7 months old, and police believe both men had walked to the gas station separately following an argument. The suspect fled the scene.

Police are working to identify and apprehend the suspect."
