The woman was rushed to a hospital, where she and her unborn baby were pronounced dead.

She had been shot in the head and the stomach, Philadelphia police said, according to WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.

“The person that did this couldn’t be more cowardly,” Philadelphia Police Deputy Commissioner Christine Coulter said, according to WPVI.

The woman’s car was still filled with gifts from the shower after she was taken to the hospital.
“She was a nice person up and down the street,” neighbor Tom Mcdonald told WPVI. “It’s just sad.”
