Police were told that a shooting was taking place outside of a Dollar General store in December 2018 on the outskirts of Pleasant Grove in Birmingham
Police were told that a shooting took place outside of a Dollar General store in the Pleasant Grove suburb of Birmingham.
Witnesses said the shooting victim, Jones, had driven to nearby Fairfield.
Officers then went to Fairfield and found Jones with a bullet wound in the stomach. She was rushed to a local hospital.
Later it turned out that Jones was five months pregnant. The fetus did not survive the shooting.
Investigators later discovered that the shooting took place as a result of a dispute between Jones and Ebony Jemison, 23.
When the authorities were unable to secure a charge against Jemison, they decided to file charges against Jones.
& # 39; The investigation showed that the only real victim in this was the unborn baby, & # 39; said Pleasant Grove police Lt. Danny Reid at the time of the shooting.
& # 39; It was the child's mother who initiated and continued the fight that resulted in the death of her own unborn baby. & # 39;
According to Reid, Jones and Jemison had a fight about the father of the baby.
& # 39; Let's not forget that the unborn baby is the victim here, & # 39; Reid said.
& # 39; She had no choice to be unnecessarily put into a fight where she trusted her mother for protection. & # 39;
Jones will be sent back to Jefferson County jail, where she will be detained on a $ 50,000 bond.
