A faint cry came from a locked car that was towed to a Police Precinct to be processed for fingerprints. The vehicle’s owner was gunned down at a fast food joint in a crime-ridden area of Baltimore. Reports indicate that the cops did not check the locked car that was in their possession for over an hour.

Infant neglected by investigators cried out for help

Several hours after the car was towed from the Crime Scene, a faint cry came from somewhere. After locating the keys they had earlier taken from the victim’s pocket, the officers unlocked the vehicle.

A 10-month-old baby girl was found tightly strapped in a car seat. Some officers stood with their mouths wide open while others reached in to retrieve the crying baby.

Inside the parked car, the cute little Infant was wearing a white and pink onesie and a black sweatsuit over it. Lee Brandt, one of the homicide detectives, pulled her out of the car and held her up. The cute moment was captured by a photographer from the Baltimore Sun.

Reportedly, the officers were excited to rescue the child at such a crucial time, because it would have taken another day or two to process the vehicle.

Her father is the 71st victim, with 124 murders in 4 months

The photo was posted on social media and has now gone viral.

Officer Brandt also captured the miraculous moment on his cell phone. Her father, Ernest Solomon was killed on March 27th, and was the 71st person killed in the crime-ridden city. The area consists of countless boarded-up homes, as well as lawlessness, which conspicuously blends in to the environment of the city.

Baltimore’s murder rate has continued to spiral out of control since the start of 2017.

Reportedly, the city is still struggling after the 2015 riots and has recorded 124 homicides so far this year. The Police Department also highlighted that in one instance, as many as five people were killed in a single day.

Currently, Baltimore and the city of Chicago have similar homicide statistics -- recording the highest amount of murders in the United States in the first four months of 2017.
