LOUISIANA (KLFY) — A 6-month-old baby was kidnapped and killed in Natchitoches, Louisiana. 

Police received a call from the mother of the child who told them that two subjects came to her trailer and began beating on the door. 

Police say when she opened the door, she was sprayed in the face with what was possibly mace.

She immediately fled the home as they chased her. Upon going back she discovered the baby missing.

Police searched the area. Soon after, they received a tip of a fire near Breda Ave. 

When they arrived, they discovered a baby, about the same age, with burns on his body. 

The baby was taken to a local hospital where he later died.
