*I swear, the universe is outright BEGGING US to do something about the lack of gun control. Is this the new normal when freaking lunatics just walk up to someone’s house and start shooting, aimlessly, and the bullets just end up as they may?

A baby girl had just celebrated her first birthday when some A-hole decided to aim his gun in the direction of a converted garage …and start shooting.

The bullet struck little Autum Johnson in the head.

A witness who didn’t want to give her full name described hearing several gunshots followed by a woman screaming: “They shot my baby. They shot my baby.”

The witness said she called 911 before walking outside, where she saw the baby’s sobbing father emerge from the garage with his daughter in his arms.

“Someone take my baby to the hospital,” the father cried.

Deputies responded and rushed Atumn to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood in their patrol car, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ulysses Cruz said, from her home near Holly Avenue and San Marcus Street.

The little girl was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Authorites had initially reported that Autumn was 3 months old, but the reports later reflected her true age as 1.
