BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Police in Southeast Texas say a woman who was seven months pregnant has died after being shot and her unborn child did not survive.

A Beaumont police statement says officers were seeking three male suspects following the shooting around 2 a.m. Tuesday. Police didn’t immediately provide a possible motive for the gunfire in what officials are calling a capital murder investigation.

Officers responded to reports of shots fired and located the wounded 19-year-old woman in the parking lot of a Beaumont apartment complex.

Investigators say the woman was transported to a hospital and her baby was delivered. Both the mother and child died.

The name of the woman wasn’t immediately released.
