LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - A 25-year-old central Florida woman who is four months pregnant is in critical condition after being shot outside a residence.
The Polk County Sheriff's Office says the woman, who has not been identified, and a cousin, gave a ride to a friend in Lakeland. When they arrived, the friend went inside the home.
That's when investigators say a man wearing black clothing approached the victim's vehicle and fired several shots, striking the pregnant woman in the torso, pelvis and left thigh.
Authorities say the suspect did not say anything before the shooting.
The victim's cousin moved her to the passenger's seat and drove her to Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Both the victim and her unborn fetus are in critical condition.
