An 11-month-old baby is in critical condition after his father used him as a human shield in a shooting.

Yaseem Munir Jenkins was hit four times, including in the head and neck while he was in a moving car with his parents.

Yaseem’s father, Nafes Monroe was with the child’s stepmother and another man when shots were fired! WPVI reports that he was arrested in connection with the shooting and charged for recklessly endangering another individual and the welfare of a child.

“He was using counterfeit money to purchase drugs, knowing that counterfeit money is something that is very upsetting to drug dealers, and when they find out that they’re being burned with counterfeit money, they act violently,” Anthony Voci from the district attorney’s office said. “And this was not the first instance of Mr. Monroe using counterfeit money.

He also didn’t take his son to the hospital, he took him home. He later dropped him off with no regard for his wellbeing.

“Our investigation has led us to believe that he intentionally had his child with him when he was making such types of purchases with the idea or belief that if someone saw that he had a child in the car, that they would not fire upon him,” Voci added. “A human shield is probably the term that I would use.”

The suspected shooter, Francisco Ortiz, was arrested and charged with attempted Murder.

There is no word on whether Yaseem will make a full recovery.
