MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Shots were fired and glass was scattered all over the place after a mother and her 9-month-old son were attacked Tuesday.

Two people are locked up, but the victims' family is still in shock.

"I'm like, oh my God," Jacqueline Scullark said.  "What in the world wrong?  What's wrong? And she hollered, 'BJ!'"

Jacqueline ran frantically to her front yard to save her family.

"Oh my God. Oh my God. My grand-baby, my daughter," Jacqueline said.

The baby and his mom were attacked in front of a home on McConnel Street in East Memphis.

"It was a tan Impala blocking my little sister in," Tai Scullark said.

She was scared for her sister's life.

"A young lady was just slamming her car windows with a bat," Tai said.

"Beating back in the back of the window where my grand-baby was," Jacqueline continued.

According to police, Alice Nolen was the woman behind the attack.

Nolen reportedly went crazy, smashing window after window.

It was what police say happened next that sent chills up family members' spines.

"It said, 'pow,'" the victim's mother shouted.

The driver of the car, Robert Smith, handed Nolen a gun, according to police.

"When she jumped out the car, she did straight just like this and pointed straight to her car," Jacqueline said. "Right there in front of her window."

"Thank God she ducked," Tai said.

"That's the only reason why the bullet missed my little sister," she added.

Officers caught up to Nolen and Smith and threw them in jail.

The victim's mother said Nolen and her daughters had gotten into it before.

"My daughter said she just pulled up on the side of her and said, 'Come on, get with it, come on, get with it'," Jacqueline said.

However, the family said things went too far this time around.

"It's one thing for two adults to have a conflict, but when it comes down to these babies, leave these babies up out of it," Tai said worriedly.

Police said the baby was only nicked by the glass.

Nolen and Smith are being held on a combined $75,000 bond.

Both suspects are expected to appear in court on Friday.

    Remind me again why families are leaving Memphis in record numbers. This violent black on black scene is occurring daily in Little Detroit. Thank God, I moved my family out of Memphis years ago. For the sake of the children, move out now. Before your child is the next victim.

    Kind of makes you wonder why racists like Brooks, Fullilove and Lasimba are more preoccupied with a Hispanic roofing company or a conservative radio talk show host than the violence and crime occurring in the city.

    Yeah man. This city has some really great “leaders.”

    I can’t even defend this madness, AND IM BLACK!! Where are our leaders at??

  • ChrisWilliamsJrwearshisMammysBloomers

    There aren’t ant leaders you idiot, the blacks voted them all out of office. You got what you voted for.

  • ChrisJrisaTallyWhacker

    That’s about the dumbest statement C Williams. Hey we expect that from you.

    Can you kids just try to play nice with each other? It’s inevitable that The City Of Memphis will file bankruptcy, following in the footsteps of Detroit. Why? Racism and entitlement. The Bluff City has one foot in the grave and another foot on a banana peel. And when Taterhead Willie said “if you don’t like it you can leave,” he knocked it outta the park like Babe Ruth………I mean Hank Aaron.
