2-year-old shot and killed while lying in bed with mom

- A 2-year-old South Carolina boy was killed after numerous shots were fired into a mobile home Thursday night, FOX 28 reports.

Jasper County Sheriff Chris Malphrus says the boy was lying with his mother when six bullets were fired into the home in Ridgeland, SC. One of those bullets hit the child in the head. 

Investigators say the gunman fired as many as eight shots from a 9 millimeter from a wooded area. 

"Anytime you see a 2-year old lying their lifeless, if you don't get a lump in your throat, you're not human," the sheriff told WTGS

The sheriff's office is questioning two persons of interest who "were not cooperating" with investigators.
