A 19-year-old woman pregnant with her first child was shot dead as she slept on a sofa in a North Carolina apartment in the early hours of Wednesday.
Ondrea Japonica Stevenson, who was 13 weeks pregnant, was rushed to hospital after a gunman fired four shots into the west Charlotte apartment at 2am.
Neighbors of the apartment complex feared the target may have been the father of Miss Stevenson’s unborn child.
Miss Stevenson was the only person in the room when the shots were fired, but police said four other women and three children were also in the apartment, the Charlotte Observer reported.
She had been staying at the apartment for the past three months, but police have not said if she was the intended victim.
The gunfire woke the other people staying in the apartment, who discovered Miss Stevenson bleeding on the sofa.
A woman who said her niece lived in the apartment told Eyewitness News that everyone had been asleep at the time of the attack.

When they found Miss Stevenson had been injured they rushed her to hospital, where she later died from her injuries.
‘She was an innocent bystander,’ one woman, who refused to give her name because the gunman has not been caught, said.
Other neighbors speculated that the intended victim had been the father of Miss Stevenson’s unborn child.
