A pregnant woman lost her baby after she was shot in the stomach by another woman she had been arguing on Facebook with,
The Daily News reports:
The shooting occurred in Jacksonville, Fla., Wednesday after the expectant mother, identified as 23-year-old Markeisha Brooks, went over to 35-year-old Virginia Wyche’s house to confront her about a dispute that had begun on Facebook the night before, ActionNewsJax reports.
“They were arguing out front, something about Facebook,” a neighbor, Christopher Cash, told a local station, the Daily Mail reports. “I walked out and just heard a pop.”
While Brooks survived the shooting, her six month old unborn baby didn’t.
Wyche has since been taken into custody and charged with attempted murder. Bond has been set for $1M but investigators are trying to determine whether she may have fired a weapon out of self-defense, ActionNewsJax reports.
“Somebody had to provoke my child to anger to do what she done. I don’t know if she was trying to defend herself, or [if they were] trying to jump on my child, I can’t say,” Wyche’s mother, Lillian Jordan told News 4 Jax.
