Mother Shoots Infant Son Dead, Shoots Self But Doesn’t Die

A 20-year-old Florida woman was in critical condition Friday after she shot and killed her 6-month-old son and then turned the gun on herself, police said.

Authorities found Melanie Reyes and her baby after performing a welfare check at the request of Reyes’ family, who called 911 to report a statement on her Facebook page in which she “indicated she was going to shoot her child and herself,” according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
