Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies said Golden returned to her pickup truck after the check-up and there was a Lexus parked next to her vehicle.
“We believe that some sort of a verbal altercation occurred between the mother of the child and a black female that was in the car parked next to her,” Lt. Dan Norris said.
Norris said witnesses told them that the woman in the Lexus then shot Golden. The shooter then went for the baby, Keegan Schuchardt, Norris said.
“The mother of the child tries to get into the vehicle because the black female suspect has taken the child out of the pickup truck and put the child in the Lexus,” Norris said.
Norris said that the driver of the Lexus sped away, hitting Golden.
A witness said she heard up to seven gunshots.
“I saw a lady fall down here in the parking lot. I saw another lady get out and I saw a guy get out of the car that the lady who shot her was driving and get the baby out of the other lady’s car that was shot and they just got in the car and drove off,” witness Tia Collins said.
Detectives said that the kidnapper also took Keegan’s car seat.
The kidnapper was described as black, in her late 20s to early 30s and skinny with gold hair.
Norris said there was also a man in the Lexus. A description of him has not been released.
The car was described as a light green, light blue or teal newer model four-door Lexus that was last seen headed northbound on Borough Park.
“We feel very strongly that there is blood on the side of the vehicle, the driver’s side where the female entered the car,” Norris said.
Keegan was last seen wearing a green and white one-piece outfit with the word “handsome” on it. He is white with very short brown hair, 22 inches long and weighs 6 pounds 15 ounces.
Golden was rushed to a hospital, where she died.
Investigators swarmed the Fawnridge Apartments in the 12400 block of Sawmill Road after a car matching the description of the one used in the kidnapping was found there. Officials have not said if that car was the one used in the attack.
Anyone with information is asked to call their local law enforcement agency immediately.
The Woodlands is growing too fast.
Thank you Lord! May You judge quickly!
I didn’t have any luck there BG. Searched on Kayla Marie Golden
I *think* someone’s confused as to the last name. I found two different names in all of these news links.
(Or, I’m the one confused...)
Praise be to God, the little guy is alive. Now, just to find his mama’s killer. Hopefully there will be updates tomorrow.
Just heard on the late night update from the ABC affiliate in DFW the kidnapped newborn has been found unharmed AND a ‘person of interest’ has been detained. Prayers deliver results.
They most certainly do!!
Prayers going up for this little one’s family. They are relieved, elated and overjoyed at him being found alive and unharmed. Still it is tempered with the stunned grief of his mother’s brutal murder. Keep this family in your prayers, as they will need them for a long time to come.
More details here.
Good morning, Brad’s Gramma! Thank God this little boy is alive ... but what a sad morning for his father and other family.
Thank you Lord, for the safe return of this little one to his loving family, and please rest his mother’s soul, who passed on in such anguish.
May God watch over this small child. and his remaining family.

The healthy 3-day-old infant was found around 8 p.m., about six hours after his mother was fatally shot following a verbal altercation in a parking lot, Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon said. Ligon wouldn’t say where the infant was found, but he said the baby was being reunited with his father.
Kala Marie Golden Schuchardt was leaving an afternoon checkup with her son when she had a verbal altercation with a woman in a Lexus parked next to her pickup truck, Montgomery County sheriff’s Lt. Dan Norris said.
And they’ve got the murderer, although it remains to be seen what more will be revealed.
Good morning! I had a horrible night last night. Kept having nightmares due to this story since my wife and I have a 19month old, and she is 8 mos. pregnant! Just made 3rd cup of coffee!
I betcha that they don't show the mugshot of the perp.
And I bet that Jessie and Al and Barry and Eric won’t mention this incident at all.
Verna Deanne McClain is a registered nurse. They will post a picture here when they get one.
This whole story is just heartbreaking.
Prayers up to the family.
Smokinggun will get it, even if it's not shown elsewhere.
CAPITAL MURDER CHARGE FILED IN DEATH OF MOTHER
3:30a.m.-Overnight officials who diverted all their attention to locating Keegan shifted gears and sought to bring charges against the suspect. When SWAT ran on the Fawnridge Apartments where as they were there McClain returned to the apartments and asked to speak to detectives.

Overnight Capital Murder charges were filed on Verna Deann McClain, 30. She confessed to the incident. At an earlier date she told her sister she would be adopting a child soon. After the shooting and kidnapping she contacted her sister and told her she now had the child and would need to do the adoption.

She is being held in the Montgomery County Jail without bond.
Another person of interest is being questioned.

Capital Murder in Death of Kala Golden Schuchardt
During Baby Kidnapping
I guess the “gold hair” was a wig?
This says “Registered Nurse,” but the previous post says “Licensed Vocational Nurse.”
Either way, she’s got the Total Whackadoodle Eyes. If I were in a hospital and she turned up at my bedside, I’d be scared.
Oh Dear Lord... I feel so sick over all of this..
Thanks for the links everyone.
I have a new grandson born the same day as Keegan...I want to grab the dog, jump in the car, and go stand guard...
