A MOM-TO-BE and her unborn child were shot and killed while she slept at her boyfriend's home for the night.
Pregnant Karla Bermudez, 22, was shot multiple times Monday morning while she was fast asleep with her boyfriend in his Bridgeport, Conn. home.
Police say they responded to the home at 42 Washington Terrace at about 5:35AM after gunfire activated a ShotSpotter nearby.
When they arrived, they found the couple still in bed and shot multiple times. Bermudez, who was 23-weeks pregnant at the time, was rushed to St. Vincent's Medical Center.
But neither she nor her baby survived.
Her boyfriend, 23, sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound in the buttocks and is expected to survive.
Although police said her boyfriend is being uncooperative in their investigation, he did tell police Bermudez did not live at his house and was only there for the night.
This is the third fatal shooting in Bridgeport this weekend.
A 25-year-old man was shot and killed on Saturday in the Shelton neighborhood while a 23-year-old man was shot and killed late Sunday evening in Bridgeport's West Side neighborhood.
