“We will do everything to find who did this,” the police said.
Baltimore police are searching for the shooters who killed a pregnant woman, leaving her newborn in the hospital in critical condition. Officers found a man and a 38-year-old pregnant woman shot inside a car at about 8:13 p.m on Thursday, Baltimore police said.
Both victims were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where the man was immediately declared as dead, police said. The woman was declared dead a short time later, police said.
The newborn is in critical condition due to the emergency delivery- Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison told reporters.
Police said they believe at least two gunmen fired multiple shots.
The suspects’ car pulled up next to the victim’s car as it was parking, and one person fired out of the passenger window into the victim’s car, police said. Authorities believe the second gunman then got out of the driver’s side and fired into the victim’s car, police said.
“To be quite honest and frank, I don’t give as— what the conflict was,” Baltimore Mayor Brandon Scott told reporters. “We cannot have folks shooting at pregnant women in our city.”
