Right now, authorities are still looking for answers as to who shot the pregnant woman as she lay next to her son in bed and why.

According to ABC 30, Baker was shot in an apartment she shared with three other people at Griffith Gardens Apartment Complex and neighbors reported hearing quarreling in the moments before the fatal shooting.

Several people were there at the time and are being questioned about what happened.

Baker’s grieving sister Katie Martin struggled to hold back tears.


“She graduated high school, and she did everything she was supposed to do,” she said. “She has a beautiful baby that she loves so much, and he is going to grow up without a mom, and it’s devastating.”

“According to some neighbors, they heard arguing and, from what we’ve heard so far, someone went into her room, an unknown male shot her,” she added. “Somebody knows something and they’re not saying. And we just don’t understand why someone would take her life in the middle of the night while she was asleep or with my nephew, we don’t know. We don’t know.”

Baker gave birth to her first child four months ago and was six weeks pregnant with her second.

Another sister, Cassie Baker, told ABC 7 that the murder might have had to do with money.

“And she bought her car the night before. And the only thing I can think of is that everybody could see that she had money. Everybody knew she got her taxes back. Honestly, that’s the only thing I can think of, because my sister was just too nice. She was too kindhearted, she loved everyone,” she said.

As Fresno Police await the results of an autopsy, they are interviewing people who were there at the apartment.

“The detectives are currently at the autopsy for the victim, trying to determine who was involved. A lot of people were here when we got here, and we’ve been working on the case since we got it that morning,” the Fresno Police Department Lt. Joe Gomez said.

Vance Baker, Amber Baker’s father, says his main goal is to get his daughter justice.

“We’re not a rich family, but we’re rich with values and love and compassion. We believe that there’s more good in this world than bad. We just got viciously attacked by the bad. Our main goal is to give my beautiful daughter justice,” he said.
