MEMPHIS, TN - (WMC-TV) – A Facebook feud got violent, putting a baby in the path of bullets.

Six people, including a 10-month-old baby had to take cover inside a house while bullets were flying all around them.

"All of a sudden he started shooting up in the air two times and then started shooting down," grandmother Stephanie Howard said. "The bullets was flying across me. I was just stuck. I could not move."

Stephanie Howard was on the front porch of her house holding her 10-month-old granddaughter.

There is a big hole in the window where a bullet whizzed past her.

"And the glass just scattered everywhere all over me," she said.

 There is a hole in the frame of the window and a bullet in the wall inside the house.

"The whole thing about a baby shower," said Howard.

Vaneesha Howard, the mother of the 10-month-old was also outside. She said the mother of the 18-year-old, Adarius Green, charged with the shooting, got angry because a baby shower was moved from her house.

"Then she started talking about me on Facebook," Howard said.

Howard said Green's mother then said her daughter and some other girls were coming over to her house.

"They come with a whole bunch of girls," she said.

She said Green's mother also sent him over, and he started shooting when one of the girls said Howard had a gun. She says it was a bat.

When the shooting started at least six people took cover on the floor inside the house.

"We hope we get justice," Howard said.

Adarius Green is charged with six counts of aggravated assault.
