NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A baby who was delivered by an emergency Caesarean section last month after her mother and another man were shot at an Antioch apartment complex died Wednesday.
The baby’s mother, 23-year-old Laquisha Terrell, died Tuesday after being shot at the Cedar Pointe Apartments off Bell Road on April 28. Terrell’s boyfriend also suffered gunshot wounds to his chest and hip, according to police. He is now recovering at home.
Terrell was believed to be six to seven months pregnant and an emergency C-section was performed in an attempt to save her unborn baby.
The child’s death was announced one day after Metro police reported Terrell died Tuesday morning.
Terrell’s ex-boyfriend, Brian T. Mitchell, 23, is in the Metro jail on one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder.
Mitchell was taken into custody in South Nashville by undercover investigators driving through the intersection of Charlotte Avenue and Dr. D.B. Todd Jr. Blvd. on April 29.
The attempted murder charge in relation to the child is expected to be upgraded. Mitchell is being held in lieu of $1.5 million bond.
