ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating the shooting death of a pregnant teacher.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1RqnsP1 ) reports that 30-year-old Jocelyn Peters was found fatally shot Thursday in her apartment. Detectives on Friday confirmed the case as a homicide.

Peters was a third-grade teacher at Mann Elementary School. Her unborn child was a girl due in about two months.

Police say Peters’ boyfriend found her lying in bed, unconscious. She suffered a gunshot wound and was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no sign of forced entry.

A spokesman for St. Louis Public Schools says the district’s Crisis Response Team will be at the school Monday to help students and staff. The school was closed for Good Friday.
