The status of the unborn baby was not immediately learned.
People at the scene were shocked by what they saw.
“When I rounded the corner I saw the lady on the ground, the kid by her and she was holding her stomach,” said witness Angel Santos. “A guy was pacing — the guy from the car pacing. He wasn’t saying anything. He was just like, mad worried; he was just in total shock.”READ MORE: 'Today's Verdict Is Not The End': Tri-State Area Officials React To Derek Chauvin's Conviction In George Floyd's Death
