Pregnant woman Killed In Drive By Shooting, Baby Delivered
Doctors in the US have safely delivered a baby by emergency C-section after a pregnant woman was shot dead at a busy Central California intersection.
Police say 27-year-old Vanessa Oviedo was shot in the head in an apparent gang-related shooting in Visalia on Thursday night.
Visalia Police Lieutenant Brian Winter tells The Fresno Bee the child is in stable condition.
He says Oviedo was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting near Ben Maddox Way and Houston Avenue in Visalia.
The driver, 23-year-old Andrew Aguirre, was shot in the leg.
Winter says Oviedo and Aguirre were travelling with three other people, including an 11-month-old child, when occupants of another car opened fire on them.
He says Aguirre drove to Kaweah Delta Medical Centre where the child was born premature, but is healthy.
