A pregnant woman delivered a baby Tuesday night after being shot multiple times in South El Monte and transported to a hospital, authorities said.
The unidentified woman, in the seventh month of her pregnancy, was in a driveway of a home in the 1900 block of Merced Avenue (map) when she was struck by gunfire, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release.
The shooter or shooters fled in a dark-colored sedan and remained at large, the release said.
The baby was in fair condition early Wednesday morning, according to the Sheriff’s Department. The mother’s condition was unknown.
No other information was immediately available.
An investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Temple station at 626-285-7171.
