Spread politeness throughout your family.
Police said Adele Bing, 52, had an argument with her boyfriend, James Lane, earlier in the day and allegedly hit him with a gun. Lane went to the hospital to be treated for his injuries when officers said they received a call about a shooting at Adele Bing’s home.
Authorities said Ruby Bing went to visit her mother and knocked at her front door while holding her 4-month-old baby.
Police said Adele Bing was still upset about the argument she had with Lane and thought he was the person knocking.
Investigators said Adele Bing armed herself with a baseball bat and a handgun, and as she opened the door, she fired a shot, hitting her daughter in the upper chest. The 4-month-old was not injured, but Ruby Bing died at the scene.

The woman who fired the round apparently didn’t realize the gun was loaded, he said.
Police say the shooting occurred after the homeowner, a 48-year-old Washington Township man, retrieved the loaded Glock 21 handgun from a nightstand to show to his guests.
