PITTSBURGH (AP) – Police have charged a 15-year-old boy with shooting a pregnant Pennsylvania teenager last month, killing her unborn child.
Court papers show that Eric Taylor of Duquesne was arrested Tuesday. He’s facing criminal homicide and other charges in last month’s shooting of 15-year-old DaRae Delgado, who was seven months pregnant when she was shot four times inside her Duquesne home.
Delgado’s mother told local media that she knows Taylor’s family and is shocked at the arrest.
Authorities say Taylor will be charged as an adult. He was already being held in the Allegheny County Jail on charges related to another shooting at the time of his arrest.
No attorney was listed on court papers, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 18.
