Pregnant Woman Taken to Hospital After Report of Gunfire in New Haven

A pregnant woman and her friend were taken to the hospital after reporting that a car pulled up to a New Haven parking lot and someone in the car fired gunshots. 

Police responded to the 200 block of Chatham Street at 2:06 a.m. Friday after gunfire was reported and they found a pregnant 28-year old New Haven woman and her friend, a 26-year-old from West Haven who sustained minor injuries. 

One was from broken glass and the other was from a piece of a fragmented bullet casing, police said. Neither had been shot and a third woman was uninjured. 

The victims told police they were hanging out in the parking lot, saw a group of young men nearby and a black car with dark tinted windows rolled up and they believe someone in the car fired gunshots. 

Two vehicles in the lot were struck. 

The pregnant woman was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where medical staff determined she was not been impacted by a projectile, but she should stay the night for observation due to her pregnancy, police said. 

Detectives are reviewing video.
