An infant is safe and unharmed after a woman was killed and the baby was taken after a shooting in west Charlotte Thursday afternoon. 

The incident happened before 2 p.m. on the 4100 block of Carlyle Drive, which is off of Alleghany Street near Wilkinson Boulevard. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say the woman – whose name has not been released – was found deceased with a gunshot wound.

Jonathan Bennett, 23, is being sought in connection to the death. Detectives say Bennett is believed to have taken the 2-month-old girl with him when he left the scene.

Police said an Amber Alert was being issued for the 2-month-old, Journei Bennett, before she was found.

Jonathan Bennett and the infant girl were last seen in an older-model white Ford Expedition with New York license plate HUP3071.

Officials say a second child was found unharmed at the scene.

A neighbor near the scene said he heard about five gunshots, then saw police cars racing toward the scene.

There is no word on what may have led to the incident.

Anyone who sees Bennett or the vehicle, or has information about the case, should immediately call 704-432-TIPS, Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600, or 911.

This marks Charlotte’s first homicide of 2018.
