    Officials later apprehended 21-year-old Omari Rodgers in connection with the shooting.

    Investigators said two other passengers that were in the same car as the victim were not hurt in the incident. 

    Family members of the victim said she has kids and is currently pregnant. 

    The woman's brother-in-law said she is expected to recover, but it is unclear how the trauma of the shooting will impact her unborn child.
