A gunman shot a pregnant woman at a city bus stop and killed her unborn child, now her uncle is pleading with the gunman to come forward, “You shot a baby.”
According to PIX11, 19 year-old Tedra Paige was about 5 months pregnant when she was hit by gunfire while waiting for a bus in Seattle.
The uncle of the victim, Anson Thomas addressed the unknown gunman who fled the scene, “Hey, you shot a baby, you know what I am saying? Not just a person, you shot a baby!”
The woman, who was hit in the abdomen is in serious condition at the hospital.
Her unborn baby did not survive.
It’s news he hoped not to hear and now Thomas has a message for the killer.

Family members don’t have a motive but they don’t believe the pregnant teen or her boyfriend were the intended targets.
