Spring, Texas • A newborn boy was abducted Tuesday from his dying mother after she was repeatedly shot outside a suburban Houston pediatric center, according to investigators searching for the shooter who sped off with the infant in a blood-stained Lexus.

The mother, 28-year-old Kayla Marie Golden, was walking to her pickup after a checkup with her 3-day-old son, Keegan, when she had a verbal altercation with a woman in a Lexus parked next to her, Montgomery County sheriff’s Lt. Dan Norris said.

Witnesses said the woman repeatedly shot Golden, took her infant and sped away, hitting Golden as she screamed "my baby" and tried to reach into the Lexus, Norris said. Witnesses also reported hearing as many as seven gunshots and said a man also was in the Lexus, Norris said.

The infant was wearing a green-and-white one-piece outfit displaying the word "handsome."

The shooting happened just after 2 p.m. about 20 miles north of Houston. A statewide emergency alert has been issued for the baby.

Witnesses described the suspect as a thin, gold-haired black woman, apparently in her late 20s or early 30s, Norris said. They also said the Lexus was sky blue or light green.

Joshua Jesson said he was in the clinic with his girlfriend when he heard gunshots. He said he saw the Lexus next to the pickup, then later looked back and saw the car was gone and a woman lying in the spot where the Lexus had been.

"I thought she just passed out. Then somebody ran in here and said, ‘Somebody got shot,’" he said.

The clinic is in an area thick with strip malls.
