Officials have identified the suspect as 27-year-old Leon Cuahutemoc.
Shortly before 10 a.m., Cuahutemoc went to the woman's apartment and allegedly took her and the child by force.
Bystanders said the suspect allegedly fired several shots, though an area deputy sergeant said Cuahutemoc was not targeting the woman.
