GRETNA, La. (AP) - A pregnant woman and her unborn child are expected to recover after the woman was shot in the back in Gretna.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glen T. Boyd tells NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune (https://bit.ly/2aPmEd2) that the shooting occurred Monday night.

The woman was in a car when someone shot at the car five or six times. One of the shots struck the woman in the back.

Witnesses reported hearing gunfire near Mr. Laurel Drive, where deputies later blocked traffic to collect evidence. Investigators also examined a white Nissan Altima with shattered windows in the back window about a mile away.

The case is still under investigation.
