POLICE are on the hunt for a man who shot a young mother in the head while she was holding her four-year-old son on Thursday night off Prison Lane, Fort Fincastle.
According to police, the victim was walking to her vehicle with her son around 10pm when a man armed with a handgun shot her and fled on foot.
