17-year old pregnant mother killed by 18-year old in Ohio

A fight happened between young adults outside an elementary school, over a "boyfriend-girlfriend" issue.  A day after the fight, the combatants returned with friends.  A shootout resulted with as many as 10 people involved.

The result was the death of a 17-year old girl, Dena-jua Delaney, who was 3-months pregnant and the mother of a 6-month old boy, named Jay'mire.  She was shot in the face.

The shooter was 18-year old Robert Robinson.

From the article:

Police Chief Ralph Spotts said the shooting grew out of a fight that erupted Tuesday and resumed Wednesday afternoon in front of Superior Elementary School. 
Spotts said the shooting was at 3:30 p.m. and school had let out that day at 2:15 p.m. He characterized the underlying dispute as "boyfriend-girlfriend," but he did not elaborate. 
People gathered allies before returning, he said, and up to five people were firing handguns. 
Robinson was driving a late-model Saturn coupe and was firing out the driver's window, police said. 
Spotts said security cameras at the school and the city's traffic cameras enabled police to identify some of the brawlers, as well as the car Robinson was driving. 
As many as 10 people appear to have been involved in the fight, but no one else was injured. 
Delaney, the mother of a 6-month-old boy, was shot once in the face. Police said she was three months' pregnant.
