Pregnant New York woman shot and killed while sitting in her car
Police in Suffolk County, New York are investigating the shooting death of a pregnant woman outside of her home on Saturday night, Newsday reports.
Milagro “Millie” Canjura and her unborn child were shot multiple times in her car, which was parked in front of the two-bedroom apartment she shared with her husband.
A neighbor who didn’t want to be identified said, “Her windows were shattered. I’m looking from here and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, Millie just got shot!’ And then we didn’t see her move.”
The neighbor said she had texted Canjura that the mail had arrived at the complex. She picked up the mail and was sorting through it in her 2011 Toyota Camry when the neighbor heard six shots being fired. The neighbor immediately called 911.
Police arrived minutes after receiving multiple 911 calls indicating that there had been shots fired, but were unable to assist Canjura. She was taken to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, where both she and her fetus were pronounced dead.
One neighbor that agreed to be identified, Neil Washington, told CBS 2 New York that she was shot “in cold blood. That’s the part that disturbs me. They shot this young lady in cold blood. And the most distrubing part of this whole thing that was going on last night is to come out to the corner of the yard, and you could actually see her body slumped over. Breaks my heart.”
No suspects have been identified.
