BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham Police say 24-year-old Sherri Williams died Monday afternoon in Gate City.

East Precinct officers found Williams lying in her doorway and was pronounced dead by Birmingham paramedics. She was shot while holding her 10-day old infant. The baby was unharmed.

It happened around 1p.m. in the 7500 block of 64th Courtway South. Police say that there was an altercation between two people at a nearby store and it appears that Williams was caught in the crossfire. There have been no arrests.

"It's even more sad because she was holding her infant in her arms, when she was shot.  Fortunately, the baby was not injured," said Sergeant Johnny Williams with Birmingham PD. "So we really need to public to step up and give us all the information we have, so we can get this person off the street."

If you have any information in this case, call the homicide unit at 205-254-1764 or Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777.
