Woman accused of shooting mom, kidnapping twin babies

SAVANNAH, Ga. [WSAV] – A woman is accused of a shooting a young mom and kidnapping her twin babies on Tuesday morning, according to police.

Angela Montgomery, 23, took the 6-week-old boys, Lorenzo and Matto Rogers, after shooting their mother, 23-year-old Gabrielle Rogers, according to the Savannah Police Department [SPD].

Officers responded to the 1500 block of NE 36th Street shortly after 10 a.m. where they found Gabrielle suffering from critical gunshot injuries. She was rushed to the hospital.

SPD quickly learned Montgomery had fled the scene with the boys, prompting an Amber Alert. By 2:30 p.m., Montgomery was located at a Rincon home on St. Andrews Road in the Lost Plantation neighborhood.

 She was taken into custody by SPD detectives and SWAT, with help from the Rincon Police Department and Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, WSAV reported.

The twins were found at the home and were unharmed. The boys were still taken to the hospital as a precaution.

“What happened today is every mother’s worst nightmare. We are so thankful that Matto and Lorenzo were located quickly and were ultimately unharmed,” said Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter said. “This was an all-hands-on-deck approach. Everyone in the Savannah area was looking for this suspect and the twins.”

Minter said the case moved so quickly because of tips from the community.

“SPD, and I’m sure the rest of the city, hopes to see the children’s mother make a full recovery and be reunited with her sons as soon as possible,” the chief said.
