Baby delivered after mother shot dead while sleeping

TUCSON, Ariz. — A baby’s condition is improving after he was born prematurely after his mother’s shooting death in Arizona over Christmas Eve weekend.

The baby’s 19-year-old mother was asleep in her bed when shots were fired into the family home, hitting the woman. She was taken to a hospital where she died.

No arrests have been made. Detectives say it’s unknown if the shooting was random or if someone inside the home was targeted.
