UPDATE: 9/15/2017 Police release picture of car involved in shooting of pregnant Brooklyn woman
There is a break in the search for the suspect who shot a pregnant Brooklyn woman in the head. Police released a picture of the car they say the shots came from. They say the car was stopped on Dean Street in Brownsville over the weekend when it happened. 19-year-old Tytiana Sparks was hit twice in the head just steps from her home. She and her baby are both expected to survive. Sources tell Eyewitness News the bullets may have been intended for someone else.
A 7-month pregnant teen was shot in the head in Brooklyn Sunday. Tatiana Sparks, 19, was shot just before 1 p.m. She was standing in front of her Brownsville home at the time.
People in the area reported hearing more than one gunshot. EMS was on scene and transported the victim to Brookdale Hospital where she is in critical condition. Police say she’s expected to survive.
It’s unclear if Sparks was the intended target. Police say the culprit fled on Howard Avenue. He has a beard and was last seen wearing a black shirt and gray sweatpants.
