COLUMBIA, Md. — It has been nearly six months and still no arrests in the murder of a Howard County mother-to-be.

On Friday, Howard County Police increased a cash reward to $30,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Rabiah Ahmad, 30, was 28-weeks pregnant when someone fired a gun into a Columbia home last July.

At the time of the murder, doctors still miraculously delivered her baby, Ahja.

Sadly, a week later she too died.

Before she was shot, Ahmad recently moved to Maryland and had been staying at the home on Dovecote Drive for a few months. Detectives don't believe she was the target.

Investigators captured the alleged suspect's vehicle on surveillance video at the time of the shooting.
