      Pregnant woman dies after being shot in head

      A 19-year-old pregnant woman has died after being shot in the head while riding in a car at Wagram and Samoa Streets in Laurinburg last Tuesday night, according to Laurinburg Police Chief Darwin Williams.

      The woman was three months pregnant, Williams said. So far, no arrests in the shooting.

      Williams says the Scotland County District Attorney's Office will decide if the shooter will also be charged with Murder in the death of Colson's unborn child.

      Officers are investigating if the shooting is connected to the murder of Byron Covington,24. He was shot and killed October 30 on Washington Street.

      Kamel Stewart, 21, is charged with Murder in Covington's death.

      Laurinburg Police Department's newly formed gang unit is looking into both murders.

      If you have any information on the incidents, you're asked to call Laurinburg police at (910) 276-3211.
