Update: 20 month old child, 2 adults shot in Garland County

Posted: Updated:
Update:  Garland County authorities say Mayela Mata, 26, has died from her injuries after she was shot this evening.  The 20 month old is in stable but critical condition and the man who was also shot has been treated and released from a Hot Springs hospital.

Neighbor Jay Archer, who lives across the street, says he can't believe this crime happened so close to his home.

"It's heart breaking. It's indescribable to think a child. They flew it to little rock. Flew her to little rock and we can just pray for her because I know the mother passed away," said Archer. "I told my wife after it was over, I didn't hear anything. She said we're going to start locking the doors."

According to the sentinel record, witnesses said a masked black male kicked in the door, holding a pistol in each hand and started firing. A witness also said a suspect ran back to a white Cadillac with a blue roof, driven by another male and sped away.

Garland County (KATV) - According to the Garland County Sheriff's Department a 20 month old child and two adults were shot Wednesday evening.  Authorities were called to apartments at 200 Springwood Road around 5 p.m..  The condition and severity of the injuries of the man, woman and 20 month old child are not being released at this time.  We do know the two adults were taken to an area hospital, while the child was airlifted to a Little Rock hospital.  Authorities say they don't have a suspect or motive at this time but believe they do have the car used by the suspect or suspects.
