Port Hueneme, CA- Child In A Coma And Pregnant Mother Wounded In A Home Shooting
A 7-year old girl and her pregnant mother were wounded after they were shot inside their home in Port Hueneme, CA late Tuesday night, July 2, 2019. The shooting occurred around 10:13 pm in the 100 block of East Pearl Street. The police believed that the shooting was a targeted attack. The girl’s father reportedly took action to get the pregnant mother and 7-year old girl treated in a hospital after the shooting. This was because there was no one who the father could turn to for help after the incident. After a while, police responded to the incident. Officers took the 7-year old girl to Ventura County Medical Center in a police unit. She was then transferred to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where she remained in a coma and in critical condition. The pregnant mother was shot twice. She remained in stable condition at the Ventura County Medical Center. 3 children and 2 adults were inside a home where the shooting took place when the 2 victims were shot. The 2 adults were the parents of the 3 children. Somebody within the home at the time of the shooting was believed to be the target victim of the shooter (s). The 7-year old girl and the pregnant mother shot were in the living room at the time of the shooting. Authorities believed that there may had been more than one shooter that fired gunshots in the home. It was not clear if the shooter or shooters escaped the scene on foot or fled in a car. The motive of the shooting was not clear. However, a dispute may reportedly have initiated the shooting.
