Police shooting at robber also shoot 2-year-old boy and his mother

Florida police officers fired a total of 42 shots at a suspected back robber, killing him but in the process also wounding a 2-year-old boy and his mother. The boy and his mother were in a vehicle that had been carjacked by the suspect. The boy, Daniel, is in the hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds to his chest and arm. His mother is in fair condition recovering from a gunshot to her foot.
In total, five officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office fired on the vehicle. "I just don't want to try to speculate on why they felt the need to shoot at the suspect while he was in the vehicle," said the Jacksonville Sheriff.
Ohh shoot.
