An Ohio grandmother was arrested early Saturday shortly after she allegedly shot her baby granddaughter in the eye, leaving her in critical condition.

Police said 42-year-old Mia Desiree Harris shot the 6-month-old baby in her face after she missed her mother following an argument involving several family members just before 2 a.m.

“It wasn’t an accident. It was on purpose,” said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.

“This is one of the most disgusting, vile criminal acts I’ve ever seen, shooting a 6-month-old baby. What makes it even is this is the baby’s grandmother.”

    “Imagine doing a surgery on that small of a child, where these crazy people do these things to kids. It’s disgusting and it’s one of the worst things I’ve seen.”
