CHATTAHOOCHEE HILLS, Ga. -- Police are looking for gunmen who beat a one-year-old and shot his mother in the face during a south Fulton County home invasion Monday night.
The gunmen shot Nikki Neely, 22, in the face and back at her home on Barnes Road in the city of Chattahoochee Hills. The same men also attacked and beat Neely's one-year-old son Jovante.
"Senseless, just senseless," said Rodney Neely, Nikki Neely's uncle. "They beat the baby up."
Nikki Neely knows who attacked her and gave their names to the police, said Rodney Neely.
Police used tracking dogs, trying to find the gunmen.
Neely is in fair condition at Grady Memorial Hospital.
Her son is at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston Hospital. His condition is unknown.
