CHICAGO (AP) — A newborn boy delivered after his mother was fatally shot last week in Chicago has died, authorities confirmed Sunday.
Chicago police said the baby died Saturday. He was 4 days old.
He was delivered Tuesday in critical condition after his mother, 35-year-old Stacey Jones, was shot twice in the back while standing outside her home on the city’s South Side. She was eight months pregnant and pronounced dead at a hospital.
Jones’ other two children were sleeping inside the home and were unharmed, according to the Chicago Tribune.
