Pregnant mom, children shot at from outside southern Indiana home

Holding her newborn baby Antonio tight, Briana Taylor recalls the terrifying events of Jan. 31 that could have taken her life and the lives of her children.According to her, the first sign of trouble was her father appearing paranoid, pacing the floors of their Floyd Knobs home.”I noticed he was being a little antsy,” Taylor said. “He was going back and forth from the window and waiting for somebody, and I noticed that when he went outside and came back in, that’s when it happened.”What Taylor thought was a loud explosion, was actually a gunman firing several shots into her home on Scottsville Road, where her 1-year-old son was also inside. One bullet hit the mother of three in her right cheek.”Next thing I knew my whole mouth was leaking blood and I had teeth fragments coming out,” she said. “The only thing I was trying to do was hurry up and make sure my son was okay and get to the hospital.”At UofL Hospital, Taylor was rushed into emergency surgery where doctors delivered her healthy son, who was not harmed.”I’m so blessed,” she said. “I can’t stop that it happened, but I can recover and make sure I stay out of situations where it won’t happen again.”While she’s left to physically recover from a fractured jaw and missing teeth, mentally, she’s a mix of emotions aimed at the shooter and her father. Floyd County Sheriff Frank Loop confirmed the shooting was an act of retaliation.”This was definitely a targeted shooting,” Loop said. “The victim’s father entered into an illegal drug transaction and failed to pay his drug dealer, who then came to collect. When he couldn’t collect, he fired rounds into the house.”The sheriff’s department is not naming the suspect, but says the shooter is from Louisville and will face several felonies when arrested.”Once that person is brought to Indiana, I can assure they’ll be going to prison for a while,” the sheriff said.As Taylor looks into her son’s eyes, she has a new outlook on life and hopes those involved in this senseless violence realize the impact of their actions.”I just hope that they see what they did and know that this could’ve been a lot worse; they could’ve killed a baby,” she said.
