A woman is fighting for her life in a Philadelphia hospital after a gunman shot her in the back and killed her unborn child.
It happened around 10 pm. In the West Oak Lane section of the city.
Chief Inspector Scott Small says the 32-year-old, who was four months pregnant, was found sitting in a car with a bullet wound in her lower back. Police took her to the Einstein Medical Center, where she declared the fetus dead.
She is in critical condition.
Small says that a 46-year-old man believes he is the woman’s friend and that the father of the unborn child was shot in the legs. It is in a stable condition.
Sagheer says that witnesses heard an altercation before the shooting and saw two people flee the scene.
The investigators do not have any suspects.
