BOSTON (AP) - A pregnant teenager has been shot and killed at a
birthday party held in her honor in Boston.
Police say the 18-year-old was attending the party at her best friend's home around 2 a.m. Sunday when she asked several uninvited guests to leave.
Witnesses tell the Boston Globe newspaper the men left the second-floor apartment but once they were outside one of them fired several gunshots at the three-story building in Hyde Park, a diverse neighborhood in the southern part of the city.
The pregnant woman was looking out a window and was struck by a
bullet near her collarbone. Her aunt says she was three months pregnant and recently had her first ultrasound.
No arrests have been made.
