Pregnant woman killed in Ohio melee, baby critical

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The baby of a pregnant woman killed in a shooting in Dayton has been delivered and is in critical condition.

A spokeswoman for Miami Valley Hospital's Emergency and Trauma Center says the baby boy was born Wednesday night after his mother was brought in.

Dayton police say 27-year-old Daylynn Foster was hit once by a bullet in the area of her midsection but it's unclear if her baby was hit.

Hospital spokeswoman Nancy Thickel says she doesn't know whether the baby is expected to survive.

Police tell WHIO-TV (http://bit.ly/120YuPS) that Foster was an innocent bystander when shots were fired during a large fight on the city's southwest side Wednesday night.

Witnesses say the situation began when a man's current and former girlfriends began fighting.
