Pregnant woman shot in her apartment near U of M

(WMC-TV) - A pregnant woman is recovering after she was shot late Monday night in her apartment near the University of Memphis.

Memphis police say the shooting happened around 11:30 Monday night in the Campus Heights Apartments at 3341 Southern, west of Highland near the University of Memphis.

The 20-year-old pregnant woman was inside her apartment when someone knocked on the door. She didn't answer and then someone fired shots through the window, hitting her in the arm.

Police say this shooting was retaliation for an ongoing fight that started Saturday night between some young people at Davis Park.

According to police, the victim in this case is somehow related to the people involved in the fight but they're not sure if she was the intended target of the shooting.

She was taken to the MED in non-critical condition and her injuries are not life threatening to her or her unborn baby.

Police are still looking for the person who shot her. If you have any information call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
