Pregnant Woman Shot, Leading to Emergency C-Section


NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE — A pregnant woman was shot during an altercation in a Walgreens parking lot in East Nashville, leading to an emergency cesarean section and the birth of her premature baby.

The incident occurred at approximately 8 p.m. on Wednesday when a store employee discovered two women shoplifting. He recorded them with his cellphone and followed them outside.

As the women transferred stolen goods to their vehicle, one reportedly sprayed mace at the employee. Fearing for his safety and unsure if the women were armed, the employee fired his semi-automatic pistol at them. The women subsequently fled the scene, according to WKRN.

The 34-year-old pregnant suspect was shot multiple times and was later dropped off at General Hospital by her accomplice. She was then transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where her baby was delivered unharmed.

Both mother and child are in critical but stable condition. Authorities are investigating the self-defense claim made by the store employee.
