Doctors save baby of pregnant woman gunned down in Chicago; baby named "Miracle"

CHICAGO -- Doctors saved the baby of a pregnant woman who was shot and killed in the South Chicago neighborhood.

19-year-old Parasha Beard was sitting in a car with a 26-year-old man at 87th and Marquette around 6:10 p.m. Sunday, September 18th when someone pulled up in another car and opened fire.

Beard was shot in the neck, and the man was shot in the neck and chest.

She was pronounced dead at Northwestern Hospital, and the man remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Beard's family learned that doctors were able to save her baby, who wasn't due until December. Relatives say the infant is doing well, and they named the baby "Miracle."

Beard leaves behind a four-year-old daughter.

Police say the man shot is a known gang-member, but haven't stated if he was the target.

No one is in custody.

Detectives are checking street surveillance video for clues.
