6ABC reports:

The newborn daughter of a pregnant woman shot and killed in Philadelphia’s Frankford section has died.

Police and Temple University Hospital confirmed early Monday that the infant, delivered by emergency C-section after her mother was mortally wounded, died overnight.

The shooting happened shortly before 11:00 a.m. Sunday along the 1500 block of Adams Avenue.

CBS Philly:

Captain Steven Murianka says the gunman fired about a dozen shots at an unknown target and the victim, hundreds of yards away, got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time:

“She was watching her neighbor’s 7-year-old in close proximity, and one of the bullets from up here traveled down the block and struck her in the face.”

The victim has been identified as 26-year-old Megan Doto. She was rushed to Temple University Hospital where doctors performed an emergency C-section. Neighbors say she was eight months pregnant.

Police say they believe Doto was not the intended victim of the shooting.
