Police: 1-year-old dead in North Carolina drive-by shooting

WELDON, N.C. (AP) - A 1-year-old boy is dead after being shot in the head by someone who fired into his house from a car.
    
Police in Weldon, a town of around 1,600 northeast of Raleigh, say the house was hit by multiple bullets during the drive-by shooting at around 8:15 p.m. Thursday.
    
According to police, the child's mother, father, sibling and a great-grandparent were in the home and escaped injury, but Jaxson Clay was pronounced dead at a hospital, two weeks before his second birthday.
    
Both Weldon police and the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating.
