A Pregnant Woman And Her Daughter Both Shot While Sleeping

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - A pregnant woman and her child were both shot while sleeping. Now, the hunt is on for the gunman.

Memphis police say a bullet came through the window of their Westwood home late Thursday night hitting the woman and her six-year-old daughter.

The bedroom window where the victims were sleeping is riddled with bullet holes. Investigators say it appears the gunman was near the home, and it wasn't a drive by shooting.

The mother was treated and released, but her daughter is still in the hospital. She is expected to recover.

Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH.
