FREMONT, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 16-year-old girl shot to death by police in Northern California was pregnant.
Elena Mondragon was killed on Tuesday in Hayward.
Police say authorities tried to stop a stolen car linked to a series of robberies in the San Francisco Bay Area and instead it rammed a patrol car, injuring two Fremont police detectives.
They opened fire and fatally wounded Mondragon, who was a passenger.
Hayward police tell the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/2n92Whc ) that Mondragon was in her first trimester of pregnancy.
Two other passengers were arrested. A fourth person fled but was arrested for robbery Wednesday night in San Francisco.
The shooting is under investigation by Hayward police and the Alameda County district attorney’s office.
