PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Police say a pregnant woman and her newborn baby were killed in a double shooting in North Philadelphia, late Friday afternoon. It happened just before 6 p.m. in the area of North 9th Street and West York Street.
Police say a pregnant woman in her 30s was shot once in the chest.
She was driven to Temple University Hospital by a 40-year-old man, who was also shot in the chest and shoulder.
The woman was pronounced dead just after 6 p.m. and an emergency C-section was performed but the baby was also pronounced dead at 6:19 p.m.
Police say the man is in critical condition.
Eyewitness News cameras captured a grey van, wrapped in police tape parked in front of the emergency room.
“It’s tragic. But the city that we’re living in right now, the mind state, no one is caring about the mother. No one is caring about the child,” said Carl Washington, with Philadelphia Anti-Gun, Anti-Violence Network.
No arrests have been made but a weapon was recovered.
