MARSHFIELD (CBS) – Baby Dylan is only three months old, so he still sleeps in a crib in mom and dad’s room. Early Sunday morning, that turned out to be the most dangerous place in the family’s apartment.

As they slept, a fight was growing outside their Marshfield apartment building.

Dylan’s mother, Maria Yubi, doesn’t know what to make of it, except that her son wasn’t harmed.

“Yeah, my baby is OK,” Yubi said. “People [are] sometimes crazy, I don’t know.”

Neighbor Rosalie Santiago watched the whole thing from her deck.

“They just started beating up each other and then all of a sudden bullets started flying,” Santiago explained. “I saw somebody start shooting and then that’s it. I kind of went the other way because I was standing on the deck and I didn’t want to get hit.”

Neighbors heard three shots fired. One hit the wall near the third floor of the Yubi’s apartment building. Another went into baby Dylan’s room and lodged in the wall above his crib, showering him with plaster.

“Certainly we’re very fortunate that no one was killed,” said Marshfield Police Chief Phillip Tavares. “They were in bed sleeping and the round went through their walls.”

Tavares called the incident “extremely disturbing, extremely reckless, and very troubling.”

According to the investigation, around 1:00 Sunday morning a fight started at the Venus II restaurant and bar in Marshfield.

Both sides were still arguing as they drove away and traveled down Route 139. The fight continued when everyone arrived at the Castle Green apartment complex, where the Yubi family lives.

But it turns out that one of the people who was involved in the argument lives two floors above the Yubi family.

“The people that the argument was with haven’t totally cooperated so we’re not entirely sure what [the fight] was over,” Chief Tavares explained.

The other person involved in the fight was 25-year-old Sean Curtis, who lives right across the parking lot from where the building the bullets hit. Curtis is the one accused of firing his 9 mm weapon during the fight.

He’s being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Wednesday.
