A pregnant woman was fatally wounded in a double shooting late Friday afternoon in North Philadelphia, police said.
Doctors at Temple University Hospital performed an emergency C-section on the victim, described as in her 30s, but the child died, police said.
Shortly before 6 p.m. on Ninth Street between Dauphin and York Streets, the woman was shot in the chest and a 40-year-old man was shot in the chest and left shoulder, police said.
The man drove himself and the woman to the hospital. He was listed in critical condition. The woman was pronounced dead at 6:03 p.m. and the child at 6:19.
Police said a weapon was recovered but no one had been arrested. It was reported by 6ABC that the victims were in a minivan when they were shot.
Investigators focused on a small area in the 800 block of Dauphin. A crime scene officer photographed something on or below a grate next to an evidence marker with an arrow pointing down.
Despite the earlier violence and lingering police presence, it was largely quiet late last night in the neighborhood, a mix of residential streets, a renovated loft building, and areas of grass and trees where rowhouses once stood.
