MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A local church is raising money for the family of the 2-month-old Milwaukee baby who was killed after being hit. 

Milwaukee Police say they have a man in custody for hitting the 2-month-old infant. It happened around 7:40 Wednesday morning near 28th and Chambers. The child, Jaquerrion Dancer, died from those injuries. 

People who live down the street say it's gut-wrenching to hear that a defenseless child in their neighborhood lost his life. 

"It's really sad for a two-month-old to be killed by anybody, the most they could do is cry," Neighbor Raynell Boston said. 

Friend of Sinners Church is just two blocks away from the home, they've set up a donation page to help with funeral costs. 

"We're just here to love this community and to do whatever it takes to be here for it," Leader of Friend of Sinners Church Jordan Morales said.

Ik this happened a couple of months ago but my condolences to this lil angels family... a previous story stated that the father of the accused put some of the blame towards the mom for using the baby as a shield... How can you say that when she feared that he was going to harm them that’s why she picked up her son she didn’t know what else he was going to do... Im sorry but the person that’s incarcerated is to blame no one else... you have to have self control and obviously in that fit of rage he showed none‼️
