Neighbors tell WMAR 2 News the woman along with a possible suspect did not live in the neighborhood. A nearby corner store employee spoke about the victim, under the conditions of anonymity.

"The victim had come to purchase a sandwich," said the employee. "I guess she was coming back. She had put her order in and she was coming back to get it and from that point gun fire had erupted. It really disgusts me, first that it was a woman hit and then to find out she is pregnant."
