The mother of the child, Tyreeka Welch, 18, reported to authorities that while at home with her baby and common-law husband, Lincoln Dwehene, 19, (who is also the father of the child), Dwehene went into their bedroom for a pellet gun.
Not realizing that the safety latch of the gun was turned off, the pellet gun fired off inflicting a gunshot wound to the baby’s right lower back.
Baby Dwehene was transported to the Southern Regional Hospital and later to Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) for treatment.
Investigations are ongoing.
