On Monday evening, gunshots broke out between two groups outside the Clarke Gardens Apartments in Athens.

Ariel Callaway, 24, was shot when she held her son's hand and tried to bring him to safety. Police said the mother, who was four months pregnant, was an innocent bystander and was not intentionally targeted.

Callaway was rushed to a nearby hospital where she and her unborn baby were declared dead.

"This reckless act of violence has the life of a young mother in her prime as well as her unborn child," said ACCPD chief of police Cleveland Spruill in a press release.

& # 39; Such pointless violence is not tolerated and all our investigative tools and instruments were used to locate and arrest the suspect.

& # 39; We appreciate the help of the community and our law enforcement partners in the rapid understanding of Cooper. & # 39;
