BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —

Police have arrested a man accused of fatally shooting an Alabama woman while she held her 10-day old son.

Authorities say 20-year-old Corderious Domini McClellan is charged with capital murder in the death of 24-year-old Sherri Williams. Officials say the man surrendered to police Tuesday night and will be held in the Jefferson County jail without bond.

Authorities say Williams was standing in the doorway of her apartment in Gate City when she was hit by a stray bullet Monday. The baby boy was not injured and Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials have said two men at a nearby store got into a fight and the argument escalated to gunfire.
