Police: Pregnant teen shot 4 times loses child

Posted: Updated:

DUQUESNE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a pregnant teenager lost her baby after she was shot four times at the front door of her Pittsburgh-area home.

Police in Allegheny County said the 15-year-old girl was shot when she opened the door of the Duquesne residence early Monday.

Relatives said the victim was recovering at a local hospital, but they and police said the seven-month-old unborn child did not survive.

Family members said they do not know anyone who would try to hurt the teenager.

Allegheny County investigators are asking anyone with information about the case to call them.
