Authorities said the victim was snatched about 2 a.m. Tuesday after two armed men broke into her home in Ellenwood, a suburb of Atlanta, though the back door.
"The mother actually tried to hide the two kids," Clayton County police Officer Phong Nguyen told NBC affiliate WXIA. "There was a little dog in the house, and it started barking, so the intruders shot the dog. They demanded money and jewelry from the mother," he added.
This story has a happy ending. But there are many more stories just like it developing and sadly we will find ourselves in this horrific place again.
What about our children? Who is protecting our children?
