In Brooklyn, NY a pregnant 19-year-old woman was shot in the head outside of her home.
On Sunday night, a gunman shot Tytianna Sparks at 12:40 pm and then took off running. Sparks was taken to Brookdale University Hospital in critical condition.
59-year-old Ruth Sparks, the victim’s mother was picking up gifts for her daughters baby shower when she received the news from her husband.
Upon arriving at the hospital for emergency surgery Ruth Sparks said her daughter was conscious.
In an interview with the New York Daily News, the victim’s mother didn’t believe the bullet was meant for her daughter and explained, “It’s crazy. She was innocent, she was definitely innocent.”
37-year-old Corinne Sparks, the victim’s sister says, “When I got there they said she’s unconscious, she’s all right. The baby’s all right and God is because it could have been the other way around.”
Officers began a search of the area looking for the suspect while collecting any evidence they could from the scene.
Sparks’ neighbor Louis Leak says that when she heard screaming she came down to check what is saying, “She was laying between two cars and she didn’t look like she was alive to me. She was bleeding out.”
The surgery was successful and Tytianna Sparks and her baby are recovering. Officers continue the search for the suspect.
