    Baby Killed, 5 Wounded in Fla. Drive-By

    Published: 1/2/07, 12:25 PM EDT

    RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - An 8-month-old baby was killed and five adults were wounded in a drive-by shooting outside a home on New Year's Day, sheriff's officials said.

    Several adults were gathered outside the house Monday night when two suspects drove by and opened fire, sheriff's spokesman Paul Miller said.

    The baby, Tavares Carter, was in the back seat of a car parked in front of the home. He died Monday night at a hospital.

    Five adults suffered various injuries and were being treated at hospitals. Their conditions were not immediately available, but several were hit with multiple shots, Miller said.

    "They were running for their lives," Miller said, adding that it appeared the home had been targeted.

    Investigators were searching for the suspects on Tuesday. The motive for the shooting was unclear, authorities said.



    A tragedy for all of the victims and their families.

    Not that it makes it any the less gruesome but - in a sense I'd hope this was drug related or grudge - as against a mindless recreational excercise. Tho these days even that is a possibility.

    Even con' yellow in these situations could be inadequate. What a start to a new year.

    Scum is as Scum dose, bet on it that drugs were involved, the tragic part is a baby was involved a pure Innocent, that and this is pure speculation was likely a drug / gang house.

    Just a question...not INTENDED to slander the victims, but if 5 people were gathered outside.....why was a baby left in a locked car? I bleieve it was in the high 70's low 80's in FLA New Years Day.

    Riviera Beach is not a nice place to visit. I worked at the VA Hospial in West Palm which is about a mile from there.

    It's a pretty scary place at night.

    Even here in Gainesville, we had five home invasions a week or two ago...I have since found out that the five 'armed' home invasions up here WERE drug related...not good news, but better than being a random thing...

    There weren't any "suspects" in that car - they were perps. When you investigate or arrest a specific person sometime after the incident, that person is a suspect.
