Douglasville man accused of shaking 5-week-old son

Posted: Updated:

A Douglasville father remains jailed on three counts of child cruelty.

Investigators said Kirk Lee Mitchell, 23, admitted shaking his 5-week-old son, who is now in a pediatric intensive care unit at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite.

Police said Mitchell shook the baby because he wouldn't stop crying.

The mother of the child, who was not at home when the assault happened, called 911.

Judge Susan Camp ordered Mitchell held without bond.

Prosecutors said Mitchell was on probation or parole on a gang charge in Douglas County.
