According to witnesses, a gunman opened fire on Jonathan Watkins around 1 p.m. when he was standing alongside his minivan, caring for his child in the front seat.

Police are investigating the incident, which left Jonathan with gun shots in his side and buttocks and which was NOT the first time this family was faced with such a crime.

Jonylah's mother, Judy, was shot in the knee while pregnant with Jonylah, according to the woman's mother, Mary Young.

"There's too much shooting over there," Young told journalists Monday, adding of her granddaughter: "She's nothing but 6 months old. How could anybody... what kind of heart?"

Jonathan remains in critical care and is expected to survive, while Jonylah's fatal wounds were in her thigh, shoulder, lung, liver and bowels.
