NSTRUCTION, THAT’S COMING UP AT 6:44. ORE TO YOU.>>Sandra: DEVELOPING OVERNIGHT, A PREGNANT WOMAN SHOT AND KILLED AND SADLY HER UNBORN BABY ALSO DID NOT MAKE IT.>>Sandra: IT’S HAPPENING ON THE WEST SIDE. OUR LAUREN PODELL IS LIVE AT THE SCENE. AND LAUREN, WHAT DO YOU HAVE NEW FOR US TODAY?>>Lauren: WE’RE LEARNING A LOT MORE, PRIYA AND SANDRA, ABOUT THIS 21-YEAR-OLD SOON-TO-BE MOTHER WHO DIED OVERNIGHT. WE’RE LEARNING THAT THIS WAS HER FIRST CHILD. SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH A LITTLE BOY, NEARLY 7 MONTHS PREGNANT, AND WORKED DOWNTOWN AT THE U.S. POST OFFICE. WE JUST WRAPPED UP AN INTERVIEW WITH ONE OF HER COWORKERS AND SAID SHE WAS THE MOST LOVING HAPPY-GO-LUCKY 21-YEAR-OLD HE HAD EVER MET, LOVED HER JOB AND COULDN’T WAIT TO BE A MOM. THIS IS VIDEO OF THE K-9 UNIT FROM DETROIT POLICE, GOING AROUND THIS NEIGHBORHOOD HERE ON CROCUSLAWN SNIFFING OUT ANY EVIDENCE THAT COULD LEAD TO POSSIBLE SHOOTERS. THE K-9 OFFICER DID TELL US THAT THEY DID TRACK THE SCENT TO THE CORNER HERE OF MENDOTA AND CROCUSLAWN, BUT THAT’S WHERE THEY LOST THE SCENT. THEY BELIEVE THE SHOOTER OR SHOOTERS MAY HAVE GOTTEN IN A CAR AT THE END OF THE STREET. BUT THAT’S AS MUCH INFORMATION AS WE KNOW. AS YOU LOOK AT THE SCENE VIDEO, THIS 21-YEAR-OLD WAS OUTSIDE FOR SOME REASON AROUND 11:00, 11:30. AND HER PARENTS HEARD FOUR OR FIVE GUNSHOTS AND RAN OUTSIDE AND FOUND THEIR 21-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER LYING ON THE GROUND AT THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY NEAR THE SILVER CAR THAT HAS NOW BEEN TOWED FOR EVIDENCE. SHE WAS RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL. HER UNBORN SUN PASSED AWAY FIRST AND THEN THE 21-YEAR-OLD’S MOTHER DIED AT THE HOSPITAL. A LISTEN TO HER COWORKER LEE WHO JUST SHOWED UP ON THE SCENE IN TEARS.>>I’VE NEVER HEARD ANYBODY SPEAK A BAD WORD ABOUT HER. WE’RE CORDIAL SO ONLY INTERACT ABOUT 8 HOURS A DAY. NEVER HEARD A COMPLAINT, EVERYBODY LOVED HER, SHE WAS COOL, SHE WAS A LITTLE KID WITH A GOOD JOB.>>Lauren: HERE AT THE SCENE, POLICE HAVE WRAPPED UP THE INVESTIGATION. BUT THEY’RE LOOKING FOR ANY INFORMATION THAT COULD LEAD TO TIPS ON WHO THEY’RE LOOKING FOR. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION,
