PONTIAC, Ill. (AP) -- A neighbor says she saw an Illinois woman shoot at her 10-month-old baby before apparently turning the gun on herself.
Authorities say 30-year-old Sara McMeen is one of five people found dead Friday at a home in Emington, a town of about 100 people about 80 miles southwest of Chicago.
A man and three children, including a baby, also died in what the sheriff says was a murder-suicide.
Neighbor Annelise Fiedler told The Associated Press on Saturday that she ran outside to her backyard after hearing shots.
She says she saw McMeen in the next yard over hovering over her baby and asked if everything was alright.
Fiedler says McMeen looked at her and said, "No, everything is not alright."
Fiedler says McMeen then fired a shot at the infant.
