MACON, Ga. (AP) — A man has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of a baby at a Georgia apartment complex.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook that 28-year-old Demetrius John Simmons, 28, was arrested and was being held without bond in the death of 1-year-old Monterrious Brown in the Macon apartment.

Simmons had been at the apartment of the child’s mother, Tyceanna Brown. He was there with his girlfriend to wash clothes, the sheriff’s office said.

Simmons was taken into custody after investigators determined he had the gun used in the shooting.

He was being held without bond and it wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.
