A mother and child are in serious condition after being shot at their home Saturday morning.

Officers responded to the 900 block of 8th Ave Southwest just after midnight. Once they arrived, they found a woman sitting in a chair, suffering from gunshot wounds. The woman's son, who is 2 years of age, had also been shot multiple times.

Both mother and child were transported to UAB Hospital for treatment. The 2-year-old was later taken to Children's of Alabama.

The female victim gave suspect information to police, which led to an arrest by police in Prattville. Investigators are coordinating the suspect's transfer back to Birmingham.
