KISSIMMEE, Fla. – A man is accused of shooting a pregnant woman in the stomach, injuring the woman and killing her unborn child, according to the Kissimmee Police Department.

Authorities said the woman, who was seven months pregnant at the time, was shot Saturday night near her bellybutton.

Neighbors called 911 after the shooting but Kevin Little, 19, opted to drive the victim to a hospital instead of waiting for an ambulance, according to the affidavit. Records show he got to Strafford Boulevard and West Columbia Avenue before he noticed an officer and flagged him down.

The woman was rushed to a hospital where doctors confirmed the male fetus was dead and the bullet was still lodged inside the mother’s pelvis, police said.
