Bullet Kills 19-Year-Old's Unborn Child

A young woman was not expected to survive after a shooting in South Los Angeles left her in critical condition and her unborn baby dead.

The shooting occurred at 1:40 a.m. Thursday at 1307 W. 77th St., near Normandie Avenue, said the watch commander at the Los Angeles Police Department's 77th Street Station.

Detectives said 19-year-old Storm Reeves was shot multiple times in the torso and in the head. She underwent surgery early Thursday and is unlikely to survive, authorities said.

Reeves was seven months pregnant. Her unborn fetus was killed, police said.

Police sought the public's help in identifying the shooter, for whom they have only a vague description.
