    A witness said two adults and two children were in the car.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 2-year-old boy shot Friday while police fired at a robbery suspect is still fighting for his life.

    Witnesses said Daniel Crichton, his mother and a 7-year-old girl were inside a car at a fast-food drive-through when the bank robbery suspect tried to carjack their vehicle.

    Police shot and killed the suspect, and the boy was also hit twice by officers' gunfire. He is still in critical condition at Shands.

    Daniel's mother, who was driving the car, was also shot in the foot. She underwent surgery on Saturday and is listed in fair condition.

    Sheriff John Rutherford said five officers fired 42 shots at the unnamed suspect as he tried to drive away in the car.

    Well, obviously, this is a result of BushCheneyHalliburton, and all police should be relieved of their duties and marijuana should be legalized.

    Yes it does. Too many unintended consequences with questionable police action...high speed chases come to mind.

    Police need to come up with methods that debilitate a suspect in situations like this without using lethal force when innocent victims are involved.

    I am very familiar with that area. I lived near there for 3 years.

    Here's an idea.

    Aim for the tires. As a driver, I'd take my chances in a car accident vs. getting bullet holes put in me.
