A north Houston apartment complex was the scene of an overnight shooting that left a pregnant woman’s husband in critical condition.
The woman, 37 weeks pregnant, was retrieving something from her car at about 1 a.m. Monday at the City Station Apartments, just off Cypress Station Drive.
A man approached the woman trying to steal her cell phone and then attacked her. The husband came out of the apartment, and that is when he was shot.
“All of a sudden, he attacked her from behind and took her down and hit her on the side of the face,” the pregnant victim’s mother told ABC13.
The woman then experienced early contractions after the incident; her husband, who was able to drive himself and his wife to the hospital, was in critical condition this morning at Northwest Medical Center.
