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.

The family have set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising funds for a burial for Vanessa Oviedo, you can donate here.
