KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said a woman suspected of a drive-by shooting turned herself in to police Monday morning.

According to the post, 25-year-old Taylor Victoria O’Neal was identified as the suspect after an investigation by police.

Taylor shot at her sister Ashley while the child was running towards her, according to Smith.

Smith said his two-year-old was confused during the whole incident.

“If you ask him about it, he’ll tell you mommy got shot in the face if you ask him that’s what he’ll tell you,” said Smith.
