Neighbor Larry Turner was at home when he heard a commotion outside and began recording a fight taking place across the street.

The incident was allegedly sparked by someone calling a baby 'ugly'

A shouting match between two women in Detroit on Sunday morning led to gun violence, which was allegedly sparked by someone calling a baby ‘ugly’

‘I wasn’t prepared for what I saw,’ he later told WDIV.

Turner’s video, which has since gone viral on social media, begins with a shouting match between a 23-year-old woman standing on her front porch and a young couple, described by the police as a 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman.

Much of what is uttered during the heated verbal dispute is unintelligible, except for a few expletives. After less than a minute, the couple charge inside the woman’s house, which is followed by more yelling and sounds of a struggle.

Turner narrates off-camera, saying that the couple had left a baby unattended in their car parked on the street with a rear door ajar.

Two minutes into the recording, the 21-year-old man runs out of the house, returns to his car exclaiming, ‘Watch this,’ and grabs a gun.

A bystander is heard frantically yelling at the armed man, ‘Don’t do it, bro! Don’t do it!’

But the young man proceeds to blindly fire 16 rounds into the house as his female companion emerges from the front door and flees on foot.

The couple then jump back in their car and speed away.

No one was injured inside the home, which was occupied by at least two children, their mother and her 31-year-old boyfriend at the time of the shooting.

According to Turner, the violence was sparked by someone calling a baby ‘ugly.’

It did not take long for the police, who had been summoned to the scene before the shooting, to track down the suspects’ white Pontiac and take them into custody. 

According to officials, a firearm was recovered from the vehicle. As of Tuesday morning, no charges have been announced.
