Girls, 17, charged in shooting death of pregnant woman’s son

October 10, 2018

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say two teenage girls have been charged in the shooting of a pregnant woman that was fatal for her baby.

Greensboro police Capt. Nathaniel Davis tells news outlets the 17-year-olds were taken into custody Monday morning.

Police previously said the shooting last month killed the woman’s unborn son, but Davis has confirmed the baby was born, and died later from injuries in the shooting. His mother survived, and police haven’t provided her name.

Davis says witnesses told officers someone in a Dodge Charger fired several gunshots from inside the car and one bullet struck the woman while she was at a park. He says police are still investigating.

The girls are charged with first-degree murder and other offenses. It’s unclear if they have lawyers who could comment.
