The man drove himself to the hospital. The woman was taken to Mercy Hospital but due to the severity of her gunshot wounds, she ended up at Penn Presbyterian. She was shot in the head, arm and chest.
“She’s currently listed in stable condition,” Philadelphia Police Inspector D.F. Pace said. “That she survived this ordeal is extraordinary. The baby also survived. At this time, however, specialists have gone to the hospital to render additional care to the unborn child.”
Police are still searching for the three suspects involved in the shooting.
