Police: 19-Year-Old Pregnant NC Woman Shot, Killed
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP/CBSCharlotte) — Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say a 19-year-old pregnant woman was shot and killed as she slept on a couch in a West Charlotte apartment.
Authorities say Ondrea Japonica Stevenson, 19, was rushed to Carolinas Medical Center after shots were fired through a living room window at Little Rock Apartments, but she died at the hospital Wednesday.
Investigators say four children who lived at the apartment were not injured.
Stevenson, who was pregnant, just recently moved into the apartment, which belonged to friends of hers.
A few days before the shooting, several men showed up at the apartment looking for Stevenson’s boyfriend.
Detectives spent the day canvassing the neighborhood looking for witnesses in the case.
