The unborn baby did not survive, Athens-Clarke County police Deputy Chief Jerry Saulters told the news station.
Bystanders were already attempting CPR when authorities arrived at the Clarke Garden apartments on Carriage Court just after 9:30 p.m., police said. It is not known if she died at the scene or if she was taken to a hospital.
She was identified by police as 24-year-old Auriel Callaway. The 2-year-old was unharmed and is being cared for by relatives, Saulters said.
Investigators do not know if she was the intended target of the gunfire. They are going door-to-door at the complex Tuesday morning looking for any witnesses.
“We’re trying to get information about what happened, what led up to it,” Saulters said.
