She was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where her condition was stabilized. Her family confirmed the woman is nine months pregnant. “I heard someone like, ‘Call the police. She needs help. She needs help,’” Sanders said. “I actually came out and sat until she got in the ambulance.” Neighbors said they plan on being more cautious after Sunday’s shooting. “You can’t sit on your front porch, or either in your back yard, or even have the kids outside playing, because you’re scared something is going to happen to them,” Sanders said.
