Gary police questioned a father Tuesday about the shooting death of his 13-month-old son.It would really be messed up if daddy was involved in the murder of his child. You might hear about stories like this especially if daddy refused to pay child support, he might find a way to get at his ex and his child as well. Then again I hope there are more updates about this story. We'll find out about the cold-blooded thing that caused this.
Josiah Shaw and his mother, Kwana Shaw, of Schererville, were both shot Monday night in Gary, police said.
Josiah died after being shot twice -- in the face and groin. His mother was in critical condition from a single gunshot wound that destroyed her lung.
The boy's father, Terry Bethel, 34, also known as Terry Noel, was arrested just before midnight Monday on a warrant for unrelated traffic violations.
Police said on Tuesday that the Portage man also "is a person of interest" in the shootings.
Police believe the child's father may have left his job at ArcelorMittal's Burns Harbor plant Monday night to meet Kwana Shaw at a friend's house in the Lancaster Homes complex, 21st and Virginia.
The father of six, part-owner of a car repair shop at Central Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive, was taken into custody without incident, police said. He was being held at Porter County Jail in Valparaiso, police said.
Detectives worked throughout Monday collecting evidence in the shooting.
No weapon has been recovered, but police said they believe a handgun was used.
