MILWAUKEE (AP) — The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to whoever shot and killed a pregnant woman in a drive-by shooting in Milwaukee earlier this month.
Annie Sandifer, 33, who was the mother of five other children, was a passenger in a party bus that was parked outside a restaurant and bar early on Feb. 1. No one is in custody in Sandifer’s death, and Milwaukee police said Monday they are seeking more witnesses and information.
Police say the shooter fired five to six rounds from the sunroof of a passing car. Police do not believe the bus or its passengers were the target, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
The bus rushed Sandifer to a hospital, but she died. However, doctors delivered her baby by emergency cesarean section. Police said the baby, born very prematurely at 26 weeks, was in stable condition after delivery.
Police have described the suspect vehicle as a silver four-door sedan.
The Milwaukee Police Department is also raising money and collecting donations to help the Sandifer family. They will also hold a fundraiser.
“This homicide tears at the heartstrings of us all,” police Capt. Willie Murphy said.
