Pregnant Mass. teen shot dead at own birthday bash

BOSTON (AP) -- A pregnant teenager has been shot and killed at a birthday party held in her honor in Boston.

Police say the 18-year-old was attending the party at her best friend's home around 2 a.m. Sunday when she asked several uninvited guests to leave.

Witnesses tell the Boston Globe newspaper the men left the second-floor apartment but once they were outside one of them fired several gunshots at the three-story building in Hyde Park, a diverse neighborhood in the southern part of the city.

The pregnant woman was looking out a window and was struck by a bullet near her collarbone. Her aunt says she was three months pregnant and recently had her first ultrasound.

No arrests have been made.
