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.
