A baby was born with a bullet wound in the US state of Tennessee last weekend.

Report says its 19-year-old mother was shot and injured during an incident involving two cars on a motorway near Memphis.

The woman was 36 weeks pregnant when she was shot. She was taken to hospital where she required surgery, and where her baby was delivered.

Memphis police said the child was born with injuries and was in critical condition.

The woman’s partner told police that three men in a dark-coloured Chevrolet Impala approached their car on the motorway, before shooting at it several times.

The mother was hit by gunfire three times in her right hip.

The woman’s vehicle had bullet holes, blood, and broken windows.
