A 21-year-old pregnant woman was killed, a 10-month-old was grazed by a bullet and a 13-year-old was shot in the arm, deputies said.
Deputies said the victims were inside a car when they were shot. The woman died at a hospital. The 13-year-old was hit in the arm and the 10-month-old was struck in the side. Both remain hospitalized. The 13-year-old is expected to survive, deputies said.

Investigators said they are talking to the woman’s boyfriend, who was also in the car and is the father of the 10-month-old.
Authorities are searching for two men driving a white, late-model Malibu in connection with the shootings.
