BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) — Police in Southeast Texas say a woman who was seven months pregnant has died after being shot and her unborn child did not survive.
A Beaumont police statement said officers were seeking three male suspects following the shooting around 2 a.m. Tuesday. Police didn’t immediately provide a possible motive for the gunfire in what officials are calling a capital murder investigation.
Officers responded to reports of shots fired and located the wounded 19-year-old woman in the parking lot of a Beaumont apartment complex.
Investigators said the woman was transported to a hospital and her baby was delivered. Both the mother and child died.
The name of the woman wasn’t immediately released.
