16-year old pregnant girl shot and wounded by boyfriend

16-year old Kimberly Valasquez got into a fight with her boyfriend in the hallway outside her apartment in lower East Side New York City, which she shares with her parents and two sisters. That's when he pulled a gun and shot her, injuring her in the arm.

It turns out she was two months pregnant. Luckily, the unborn child is apparently unaffected.

The article did not give information about the age of the boyfriend, the motive for the shooting, or whether he was the father of the child.

“Her boyfriend shot her,” said a girl who described herself as Kimberly’s best friend but would not provide her name or say what fueled the dispute.

“She’s out of surgery now — she and the baby are going to be okay.”


Neighbors were surprised she was involved in the dangerous incident.

“She’s a smart one,” Jaquez said. “I never expected anything like this to happen to her.”
