JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Jackson police say a bullet came through a wall at an apartment complex and fractured a 1-year-old's skull. Authorities have taken one suspect into custody and are searching for a second.
According to The Jackson Sun, police said an altercation took place at the complex Monday night, resulting in shots fired.
One bullet grazed the infant boy in the head, but did not strike his brain. Police said the shot came from outside the building.
The child was taken to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, where he was in critical but stable condition Tuesday.

Police took Justin O'Neal Byrd into custody Tuesday. They are still searching for his brother, identified as Antonio "Tony" Demont Byrd.
