According to police, a pregnant mother was tragically shot in the face while attempting to break up a fight between her current boyfriend & ex-boyfriend after her own baby shower in New York.
Shanice Young, 31, who was reportedly eight months pregnant with her third child, was hauling baby shower gifts into her highrise with her boyfriend when they were confronted by the gunman, her ex.
“[The gunman] came in chasing the boyfriend,” Jose Morales, the super of the building, told The New York Daily News. “They ran through here and out the other side and they ran downstairs.”
The shooting allegedly occurred in front of Young’s daughter.
Outside the building, a memorial to the 31-year-old woman and her unborn child was constructed. Later that day, her family gathered to mourn.
There have been no arrests made by police as of yet. The shooter’s identity has not been released by the NYPD.
