Packing Heat: Men Arrested After Allegedly Hiding Sawed Off Shotgun in Stroller With 8-Month Old Baby

Daryl McGregory, 19, and Michael Nelson, 22, are facing charges after police found that they were pushing a stroller around with not just a baby but a sawed-off shotgun.

They allegedly put the shotgun in a duffel bag underneath McGregory’s 8-month-old child. Nelson reportedly had been kicked out of an apartment and both men were going to confront the caretaker of the apartment building. A resident told police that McGregory told him and said “I’m packing major heat in here.” Nelson allegedly added “Somebody’s going to die.”

They apparently were not referring to a loaded diaper.

What is amazing is that they appeared willing not only to stroll around with the baby lying on a sawed off shotgun but to get into a gun fight with the baby in tow.

  1. some really gross things have happened here in South Fla w/guns and gangs….a gang rape of a mother and her child in a housing developement, kids shooting their teachers or other kids…I don’t disagree that they are nuts but there may be a correlation between high government corruption/business practices and the undue stressors and conditions that breed that sort of violence.

  2. James M.,

    Not really shocking as I can’t count the times a drug stash has been hidden with a child or in toys and accessories.

    Revolting most certainly.

    But you’re dealing with sociopaths (and possibly psychopaths).

    Conscience is required to be shocked and the impropriety of an act.

    Which is good for you (as you displayed it in your comment) and bad for them (as demonstrated by their actions). In the end their behavior is bad for society and the public at large who will be exposed to creeps like these probably for as long as their are people. A certain percentage of people will always be crazy.

  3. Two more Einsteins who have no business being in charge of a child. I don’t care if the shot gun was not loaded, because kids die all the time from gun shots from guns that “weren’t loaded”!

  4. It is not uncommon for people to hide sawed-off shotguns, pistols, drugs, etc. in strollers, cribs, diaper bags, etc., thinking cops won’t search there. In some communities, babies are seen as an inconvenience, disposable. They often wind up spending much of their adult lives in prison.

    This.

    According to the linked source, the gun was unloaded, so the baby wasn’t in any immediate danger of the gun accidentally going off. The fact that they were taking the baby with them as camouflage to help them shoot someone is still shocking.

  6. Its a hard choice of how gets the Darwin nomination this morning….Some are irresponsible and some are just plain stupid…where do these clowns fall in…oh yeah cell block….
