Milagro “Millie” Canjura was shot while sitting in her car on Saturday night in the Bay Shore area of Long Island, N.Y.

Canjura, who was six months pregnant, was pronounced dead (as was her unborn child) at a local hospital.

The new mom-to-be was shot at about 8:40 p.m. in her driveway, according to Suffolk County police (video below).

"Her windows were shattered. I'm looking from here and I'm like, 'Oh my God, Millie just got shot,'" an unidentified neighbor told Newsday. "And then we didn't see her move."

The neighbor claimed to have heard six shots.

Canjura was reportedly shot in her head, neck and arms. Neighbors said the area has been a target for drive-by shootings.

“So we’ve kind of all been on pins and needles ever since that first incident happened because it’s just sad,” neighbor Yvonne Simpson told CBS New York. “There’s no other way to put it.”

“You know this isn’t the first time we’ve had a shooting around here, but you know something like this, this is serious,” Simpson added.

“In cold blood,” said neighbor Neil Washington. “That’s the part that disturbs me. They shot this young lady in cold blood. And the most disturbing part of this whole thing that was going on last night is to come out to the corner of the yard, and you could actually see her body slumped over, breaks my heart.”
