SPRING, Texas (AP) -- The mother of a woman whose newborn son was snatched from her as she was shot to death outside a suburban pediatric center said her daughter "died trying to save her baby."

Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon said the 3-day-old boy was found safe around 8 p.m. Tuesday, about six hours after his mother, Kala Marie Golden, was fatally shot following a verbal altercation in a parking lot.

Ligon said the child was "healthy" and that a person of interest had been detained, although no charges had been filed. He would not provide any details about the person.
