Ga. Mom Charged With Murder After Allegedly Dropping Baby in Fight
A Georgia woman has been charged with murder after she dropped her baby during a fight with another woman, which police say resulted in the baby’s death.

Karen Lashun Harrison, 26, remains in police custody on murder and several other charges including felony child cruelty, simple battery and affray charges, according to a Moultrie Police Department statement.

Police in Moultrie have not released the name or sex of Harrison’s child.

According to the statement, authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy on the 3-month-old’s body, but investigators believe the child died as a result of the fall.

The fight occurred Friday, outside a beauty supply store in Moultrie. First responders rushed to the scene and transported the baby to a nearby hospital.

The child died on Saturday, the statement confirms.

Police allege Harrison told officers the child fell out of a family friend’s arms, an account the friend allegedly backed up.

But detectives obtained surveillance footage of the fight, which shows the baby in the mother’s arms.

The friend, Carneata Clark, 26, was charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements to police.

PEOPLE was unable to reach Clark for comment.

Harrison’s bail information was unavailable at press time.

It was unclear if Harrison or Clark have entered pleas to the charges against them, or whether either had an attorney who could speak on their behalf.

Mother allegedly drops, kills her 3-month-old baby while fighting another woman

The fight took place in the parking lot outside of the store. Police say Harrison dropped her three-month-old son on the pavement during the altercation.

The child landed on its head, and was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for treatment the following day. It later died from injuries related to the fall.

Harrison originally told police that her baby received the injury when it fell from a family friend's arms.

That friend, Carneata Clark, corroborated the story. She's since been charged with providing false statements and obstructing an officer.

The other woman involved in the fight has not been charged, however Moultrie Police Lt. Freddie Williams said the investigation is still underway and that more charges are possible.

Video obtained by WLAB-TV shows how the incident unfolded. However, due to the graphic nature of the footage, the station chose not to air the clip in its entirety.

Their Muhammad Ali and George Foreman ultimate rumble in front of the the BSS was not worth the loss of a precious life. Imho the other lady ought to be charged as well.

I agree with the bolded, In watching the full video in slow motion I don’t understand how the mother is being charged for murder and not the other woman, the other charges sure.

The other woman initiated the fight and it looked like the mother raised her arm in defense when the woman who initiated grabbed her shirt and arm causing the mother to drop the baby. That poor baby.

So the woman with the baby shouldn't have backed away from the other woman because the other woman started it? or at least told someone hold my baby first. Got it.

I told ya'll these chicks don't care about being pregnant or holding a baby, they will fight you and not back down.

I could NEVER escalate a potentially dangerous situation while with a child, let alone while holding an infant. The mother had no regard for her child’s safety as she escalated the confrontation (getting closer to the woman, the aggressive body language, the finger pointing towards the woman’s face). And the woman had no regard for the child’s safety when she escalated the verbal confrontation to a physical one by hitting the mother with a bag WHILE AN INFANT was in the mother’s hand. Idiocy all around. The child suffered.
A horrible disregard for human life from everyone involved except the friend who picked the baby up to prevent further trampling. I wish the friend had offered to hold the baby while the mother brawled.
Oh well.

The other lady hit first, but the mother’s stance and body language was equally, if not more, aggressive. I think both should be charged.

Having an aggressive stance isn’t the same as throwing the first punch-at least if you are an adult. These women are not children and just because someone is acting aggressive doesn’t mean you escalate it-especially if there is a child involved. The woman who threw the first punch deserves to be charged too.

Hitting a woman with a child is child endangerment. If it was a domestic violence situation and someone hit their SO while a child was present we would recognize that the party who swung first endangered the child.

There is enough blame to go around. The mother deserves to be charged. I’m not arguing that. But the women who she was fighting isn’t blameless in this child’s death either.

Saw a short video clip

1. Was the later who hit the lady holding the baby first pregnant? Because it looks to me like she is and she should be charged with murder and child endangerment for her unborn baby. For all she knew that first hit could have caused the lady to be unbalanced and drop the baby.
2. The lady holding the baby should have backed away and sort protection for her child. The situation was already tense before the hit or maybe she thought that the woman wouldn't attack her with a baby in her arms. But instead of going with her instinct to defend herself and fight back she should have fled and sort to protect the baby first.

Fled and sort to protect the baby? Really? You are asking too much. That woman hit her first. She had to protect herself and her baby in her arms by fighting back.

What was the excuse for waiting to take the baby to the hospital?

eta: Baby was taken to the hospital from the scene. At least there was no delay in treatment, such a shame that this happened.

All the adults need to be locked up under the jail. Why did no one's common sense kick in to walk away or wait until the infant was out of danger before starting the rumble in the jungle. Even animals in the wild know to put their young away or behind them in the presence of a threat.

And the baby was taken to the hospital immediately after the fight on Friday due to his injuries. He died on Saturday. There was no delay in the baby getting medical attention.

Did you read my very short post to the end, where I said they both should be charged?

The argument shouldn’t be about whether being aggressive and threatening is the same as physically attacking someone. We know it’s not. You don’t need to preach that. It’s about whose actions endangered the child. Both of their actions did.

I saw this the other day. Poor baby.

Two of the worsts fights among adults I’ve witnessed in real life have been at a beauty supply store. One was because one person bumped into another without saying excuse me...
It’s a lot of physical and verbally aggressive women that shop at the beauty supply store. Just walking around with chips on their shoulders ready for some action.

What's happening at the beauty supply?
1. Are they mad because they know they shouldn't be giving these Asians their money?
2. Is it because the wigs are ugly?
3. Is weave toxic?
4. Do they feel they can't take it out on the Asian business owners so they take it out on other shoppers?

I think so and a bunch of other things to add to the list. I was there the other day and it was drama filled. Every time I go and it doesn’t matter what bss I go to, somebody is getting really sassy and loud. But hey where else can somebody go that’s on the ground to get what is sold at the BSS? So all kinds of types and personalities will show up. That mess doesn’t happen at Sally or Target.. lol

Imagine the type of life you have to live to not even have internet access to order beauty and self care products online. Don’t know nothing about an Amazon Prime account... People with that life are the ones rolling up in the Asian BSS. They’re angry.
