A pregnant woman in San Antonio, Texas, was killed by the baby’s father on Christmas Day while her young children were inside the home, officials said.

A 24-year-old woman was shot in the head inside a residence on the Northwest Side around 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 25, according to San Antonio police.

Officials said the woman had come to Candle Park to exchange her two children with their 27-year-old father when the man allegedly shot her.

The woman’s current boyfriend, who was outside in the car, heard the shots and ran inside where he found the woman, according to officials. Her 2-year-old and 6-year-old children were apparently inside the home when shots rang out.

The woman was 33 weeks pregnant and pronounced dead at the scene. Police said her baby did not survive the shooting.

After fatally shooting the mother of his child, the 27-year-old shot himself, according to police. He was taken to University Hospital and is in “extremely bad condition.”
