*A pregnant woman has lost her baby after she was shot in the stomach earlier this week, allegedly by a woman that she had been arguing with on Facebook.
Following a report about an argument and subsequent shooting, Jacksonville, Florida police were called to the scene. A video, taken by neighbor Christopher Cash after the shooting, shows the victim slumped in a chair as neighbors rush to help her.
The video also shows the suspect, 35-year-old Virginia Wyche, being taken into custody.
“They were arguing out front, something about Facebook. I walked out and just heard a pop,” said Cash.
Witnesses say the two women got into an argument on Facebook Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the victim went to Wyche’s house to confront her about the disagreement.
The argument turned physical, and that’s when Wyche, seen below, allegedly shot the pregnant victim. “I know the victim was definitely shot in the abdomen. That’s the one gun shot that I know of. That’s why the consideration and concern for the unborn child’s health,” Jacksonville Sgt. Michael Paul said before it was learned that the baby had died.
‘My son called me and I was very disturbed about this because this is not the way I was raised, and they (were) not raised like this,’ Jordan told reporters. ‘Somebody had to provoke my child … to do what she (did). I don’t know if she was trying to defend herself, or if they (were) trying to jump on my child, I can’t say.’
Wyche was booked into jail on one count of murder and one count of attempted murder. Investigators say they will continue to look into whether the suspect shot the victim in self-defense.
Though its not my intention to judge, I wondered if there was any warnings or clues to how a person who would intentionally point a gun towards the stomach of a pregnant woman and shoot thinks. This post from the suspect’s page is over a year old, but Wyche writes, “I can see death all in me.”
