A newborn baby will never know her mother thanks to the suspects involved in a shooting in Baytown Monday night.
Domonique Million, 23, was inside her apartment on Garth Road when she was struck in the head by a bullet, Baytown police said.
Million was airlifted to the hospital but doctors weren’t able to save her. Thankfully, they successfully delivered Million’s baby. The baby girl was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital where she’s recovering.
A 20-year-old man who was shot outside the apartment is also recovering after surgery at Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Police initially said Million was killed by a stray bullet during a shootout between vehicles, but now they believe her apartment was targeted.
Neighbor Ronni Moore was taking a nap when the gunshots woke her around 6:30 p.m.
“Probably like 8 or 9 … there was a lot,” Moore said.“If we had been out here we, you know, probably would’ve been shot because we usually sit right out here and smoke.”
Meanwhile, Moore has lost a neighbor she never really knew.
“I’m sorry for her – my heart goes out to her and her family,” Moore said. “I just know that the lady who lost her life was pregnant, and it’s just sad – it’s so sad.”
It happened at the same complex where the highly publicized police-involved shooting death of Pamela Turner occurred two years ago this month.
Anyone who has information on this or any other crime is asked to call the Baytown Police Department at 281-422-8371.
