On Monday, a 21-year-old pregnant Chicago woman, Genesis Escobar, was gunned down during an alleged botched robbery where Escobar and her boyfriend attempted to rob a group of drug dealers, who then opened fire on the pair.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Escobar, who was 7 months pregnant, allegedly met the drug dealers and got in their car to complete a “drug transaction” but then her boyfriend flanked the vehicle in an attempt to rob the crew, prompting the drug dealers to shoot Escobar multiple times before she “tumbled out of the car.”
