A five-week-old baby and a man were killed in a horrific crash after a mother led police on a high-speed chase after stealing baby products from a Louisiana Walmart.
Edward Williams, of Monroe, and a five-week-old baby died after Candance Gill, 38, led police on a chase that ended up in two crumpled cars shortly after 6pm on Monday.
Gill and Williams were reportedly confronted by security at a Walmart for stealing baby products. By the time police arrived to the scene, the couple had already fled in their vehicle.
Gill's silver Chevrolet Camaro was spotted speeding down a highway by witnesses.
An 'officer pursued and activated his lights and sirens, but the vehicle failed to stop,' the police report, obtained by KNOE, said.
She reportedly drove on the shoulder of the road and ran several red lights shortly before crashing into another vehicle near Highway 165 and Renwick Street.
Gill fled the scene and was later found at an Otis Street residence. She was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center with a $271,950 bond.
The mother was charged with two counts of manslaughter, four counts of negligent injury, one count of shoplifting, four counts of failing to appear for a bench warrant, two counts of not using a seatbelt, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of a felony, and more, according to her booking information.
