Baby boy delivered after pregnant woman shot dead

Doctors have successfully delivered a baby boy whose mother had been fatally shot, police in Ohio said.

Officers said the pregnant woman was shot on Monday night at a home a few miles west of central Columbus, and a man was critically wounded in the incident.

The baby boy is also in hospital in a critical condition.

Sergeant Jeff Strayer told WSYX-TV the murdered woman was about 35 weeks pregnant.
