A Tennessee woman died after she was shot in the face while she was holding her toddler son. The incident took place in northeast Memphis Saturday (June 6).

A man, whose name was not revealed, told police that the accused in the shooting, identified as Annesha Jackson, who is the mother of one of his children, had stopped by his home Saturday. She got angry after he did not answer the door.

A few hours later, she came back, entered the home and grabbed his hair, he said. The two then fought outside the home. When the woman took out a gun and threatened to shoot him, the unidentified man said he immediately went back to his home.

He then heard a gunshot. The man told the police that the bullet struck a woman, identified as Tiffany Wilson, in the face. The woman was standing nearby when the two were fighting and she was holding her one-year-old son when she was shot.

Wilson was rushed to a nearby hospital in a critical condition. She succumbed to injuries at the hospital.

Jackson was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder and aggravated assault in the shooting.

The incident comes a month after a man in Milton, Florida, was arrested after he slammed a woman’s head on a counter while she held an infant baby. Investigation revealed that 27-year-old John Currey and the woman were having a heated argument when Curry started assaulting her upon noticing that she wasn’t wearing a ring that he had gifted her. The man grabbed and squeezed her fingers. When the woman threatened to call 911, Currey grabbed her neck and pushed her. He then took away her keys and phone before slamming her head on a counter while she was holding a six-month-old infant. Currey was arrested and charged with several offenses including battery, child cruelty, and obstruction of justice.
