Pregnant Mother In Critical Condition After Being Shot In Violent Gang Crossfire!

Why was this two months pregnant mom in gang territory in the first place?

Yarelis Carrillo, 20, from Lawrence, Massachusetts is in critical condition after being shot at 1:30 AM on Saturday, May 28, according to the Daily Mail.  The single mother, who is two-months pregnant with her second child, was caught in a serious gang crossfire that resulted in this sole injury. Carrillo was shot above the heart and stopped breathing before being admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital. Terrifying!

Police say the mom was standing in a dark alleyway between two houses at the late hours of the morning when the bullet was fired from a car parked across the street.

Although the situation seems very questionable, police believe that the mother has no connections with the gang and was swept up in the situation by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“We believe she was out there, and at some point just got caught in the commotion, and we don’t believe she was an active member in this incident at all,”  Lawrence Police chief, John Romero, told a local news station.

Ms. Carillo’s mother Elizabeth Mercada is hopeful that her daughter and soon-to-be grandchild will make a full recovery. “I have all the church people praying for her. I got people from Puerto Rico, Florida, everywhere praying for her,” she adds.

We hope both mother and unborn baby are being well cared for and pray they make a full recovery!
