A Harlem woman who was nine months pregnant was shot and killed Sunday morning while returning home from a baby shower.
Shanice Young, 31, was shot in the head in front of her daughter by her building on West 128th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, ABC 7 reports. As she was returning home from her baby shower shortly after 1 a.m., police say she was returning gifts into her building lobby when a fight broke out between two men, who neighbors identified as Shanice’s ex and the father of the unborn child.
One of the men had a gun on him, which reportedly fired off and hit the mother in the head. Sources told the New York Post that three .40-caliber shell casings were found near the scene. No arrests have been made as of Monday morning.
