5-month old Georgia boy unintentionally shot in leg by felon father

A 5-month old boy in Redan, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta) was at home with his father when the father unintentionally shot the boy in the leg.  The boy was rushed to the hospital and is expected to recover.

The father, 19-year old Keymon Jackson, is a convicted felon.  He fled the scene and is currently being sought.

From an article:
Detectives are looking for a father, who they believe shot his own 5-month-old at a home off of Redan Road in unincorporated DeKalb County. 
Detectives said Keymon Jackson, 19, might have accidentally shot his son in the leg. 
Jackson is wanted on several charges related to the case, including reckless conduct, tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is also wanted on an unrelated violation of probation, authorities said.
