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.

    Regardless of what time of night she was out to shoot a pregnant woman on a street means this person has no regard for life at all I pray they catch him before another innocent person is hurt or killed.

    Hooding around outside at 12:40 in the morning when pregnant?? Doesn’t sound so innocent. Did they interview the baby’s father?

    • READ you miserable ignorant racist bastard. It said 12:40 PM. So damn quick to jump on here and make your racist comments. Wish we could find out who you really are. SOB

        “On Sunday night”. Just because BAW doesn’t know the difference between am and pm, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Almost 1am , pregnant, hanging out in the middle of the night. Doesn’t she have to get up for her job the next morning?
