LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a pregnant woman due to give birth next month was shot and killed while walking her dog outside her Lexington apartment.

Multiple media outlets report that the Fayette County Coroner’s Office says 22-year-old Maryiah Coleman of Lexington died following the shooting Wednesday night. She was eight months pregnant.

The coroner’s office says the baby also didn’t survive.

Police say officers were called to the Matador North Apartments around 11 p.m. where they found the victim with a gunshot wound to her upper body.

Authorities say Coleman was walking her dog outside the complex when she was shot.

No description of the shooter has been released. Investigators say they aren’t sure if they are looking for a lone suspect or a group of people.
