THE BOMB SQUAD WAS CALLED IN TO SEARCH A PARKING GARAGE AND MUSEUM. DETECTIVE LATER GAVE THE ALL CLEAR AT BOTH LOCATIONS. AND, WE ARE FOLLOWING A DEVELOPING STORY OUT OF NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE. POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR THE PERSON WHO SHOT A PREGNANT WOMAN AND LEFT HER IN THE STREET. CBS4’S RIELLE CREIGHTON IS FOLLOWING THIS STORY FOR US AND JOINS US LIVE FROM THE SCENE WITH THE LATEST. Reporter: WELL, WE TALKED TO A NEIGHBOR WHO SAID THAT SHE WOKE UP TO ABOUT FIVE OR SIX GUNSHOTS THIS MORNING, THIS ALL HAPPENING AT ABOUT 5:18 A.M. YOU CAN SEE OUT HERE RIGHT NOW, SOME SEVEN HOURS LATER NEARLY, POLICE ARE STILL OUT HERE INVESTIGATING. LET ME SHOW YOU VIDEO OF WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE HOURS AGO. NOBODY ACTUALLY CALLED 911 TO REPORT THIS TO POLICE. POLICE CAME OUT HERE AFTER THIS WAS DETECTED BY THEIR SHOT SPOTTER SYSTEM, AN ACOUSTIC SLAUGHTER SYSTEM THAT VERIFIES THE SOUND OF GUNSHOTS. OFFICERS CAME OUT HERE AND CANVASSED THE AREA. THAT’S WHEN THEY FOUND A VISIBLY PREGNANT WOMAN ON THE GROUND BLEEDING. THEY SAY SHE HAD BEEN SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES IN HER UPPER BODY, HEAD OR NECK AREA. SHE WAS RUSHED TO THE TRAUMA CENTER WHILE POLICE SET UP A PERIMETER TO SEARCH FOR THE SHOOTERS. DETECTIVES TELL ME THE VICTIM WAS IN SURGERY AND IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION, SHE SUFFERED A TREMENDOUS ABOUT OF BLOOD LOSS, HER — AMOUNT OF BLOOD LOSS, HER BABY IS ALSO IN CRITICAL CONDITION AND AT RISK OF NOT SURVIVING. SHE DESCRIBED AS IN HER 20s. THE SHOOTER HAS NOT BEEN CAUGHT IN THE SEARCH FOR THE SUSPECT CONTINUES AT THIS HOUR. BACK OUT HERE LIVE, THERE ARE NO WITNESSES OR ANYONE WHO HEARD THE SHOTS, OR CALLED IN THE SHOTS AND BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO INTERVIEW THE VICTIM, THERE IS NO DESCRIPTION ON THAT SUSPECT AT THIS TIME. SO, POLICE ADMITTING TO ME THAT RIGHT NOW, THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT TO GO ON. THEY ARE ASKING FOR ANYONE WITH INFORMATION TO GIVE THEM A CALL.
