A $50,000 reward is being offered for leads after a pregnant woman was shot and killed following her baby shower in Philadelphia on Saturday night.

The 32-year-old woman, whom police did not publicly identify, was shot in the head and the stomach at around 8:35 p.m., Philadelphia police said. She was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about 30 minutes later.

Officer Miguel Torres said the woman was unloading baby shower gifts from her car when she was shot.

She was seven months pregnant, police said. Her unborn child was pronounced dead Sunday morning.

Mayor Jim Kenney said the news was "deeply upsetting and heartbreaking" in a tweet Sunday.

"My heart goes out to the victim’s loved ones during this painful time," Kenney said. "The City is offering a $50,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest."
