A bloody scene, and a baby who lived through it.
We can only hope this baby has the memories of most babies, which is basically none.

A baby girl was found alive in a blood-spattered apartment yesterday afternoon, hiding under a bed near two dead bodies and a critically injured man.

None of the identities have been released, pending formal notification of family. "The baby appeared unharmed, but was also transported to an area hospital where she was treated and released to family members," Houston police said.

The incident occurred at an apartment complex in the 1300 block of Greens Parkway about 4:40 p.m. Wednesday. A friend of one of the victims went to the apartment when the man failed to show up for work.

"Finding the door open, the coworker went inside, saw blood on the walls of the bedroom and then called 9-1-1," HPD says.

Police say all three adults appear to have been shot.

"At this time, there is no known motive nor suspect(s)," HPD says.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
