UPDATE:Pregnant Woman Shot and Killed: Her Newborn Critical

DAYTON -- Police  are trying to figure out who shot and killed a young mother who was 9 months pregnant.

Police said Da'Lyne Foster, 27, was an innocent bystander  who caught a bullet  to the chest and died. Her newborn baby is listed in critical condition.
 
Sadness blankets the Desoto Bass neighborhood after a young mother,  9 months pregnant  was shot and killed.
 
"Everybody  out here knew her.  She was a loving  parent,  she took care of her kids."  Jennifer Thomas, Da'Lyne's cousin said.  

Thomas said Foster was ready to deliver her 4th child. She said  Foster  was outside Wednesday night,  walking around, trying to get the  labor process going  when a fight broke out between two groups  of people.
 
A man started shooting at a car and Foster got struck with a bullet.

Police  said she was shot once in the chest and died at the hospital.  

"She was a spectator,  watching the fight.  She ran across the street, she had nothing to do with the fighting going on."  Dayton Police Sgt. Rick Blommel said.    
 
Foster's  baby boy  was delivered by emergency c-section and is listed in critical condition in  the NICU at Miami Valley Hospital.   

A memorial is growing at Desoto  Bass for Foster  who is  described  as loving mother to her 3 other kids.

"She was a good person. She cared  about people. Anything you need, she gave it to you."  Delores  Nicholson said.  Nicholson is the  baby's paternal grandmother.
  
Police questioned a man and recovered the gun.   Sgt. Blommel said they  believe they know who the shooter is,  but are waiting on ballistics tests to come back before they can make an arrest.

Her family said they want justice for Da'Lyne  who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

 "She just wanted the best for her and her  kids.  I just can't believe she's gone. She  is actually gone."  Thomas added. 

A candlelight vigil is set for Foster Thursday night in the Desoto Bass neighborhood at 9pm.




DAYTON -- The Montgomery County Coroner's Office has confirmed that pregnant 27-year-old Daylynn Foster has died from her injuries after being shot Wednesday night at Danner Avenue and Stewart Street.

Foster delivered a baby boy shortly before her death at Miami Valley Hospital. The baby boy is now in the neonatal intensive care unit and is listed in critical condition.

Foster's neighbor Melvin Piekard said he heard that Foster had nothing to do with the shooting.

"I heard some other people were shooting and she just got hit in the crossfire," Piekard said.

He said Foster was a sweet girl and didn't typically get involved in the neighborhood drama.
