A 6-month-old baby survived a deadly domestic violence incident in an Atlanta suburb Sunday.

According to WSBRadio.com, Antoine Davis, 30, became belligerent and shot and killed the mother of his child, Jessica Arrendale, 33, before taking his own life.

The article stated Arrendale was holding the baby at the time of the shooting and somehow managed to twist her body in the opposite direction.

She dropped the baby into the toilet instead of on the floor and her body shielded the child.

Not knowing what was happening inside the home, police were reluctant to enter, fearing it would make matters worse.

Some 13 hours later they stormed inside, found the child and got her to a hospital.

The family calls Arrendale a hero for protecting the baby.
