BALTIMORE (WJZ) – It’s been two days since a pregnant woman and her fiancé were murdered outside their home on 23rd Street in East Baltimore on Thursday.

Despite being severely wounded in a hail of bullets, 38-year-old Angel Smith, who was seven months pregnant, gave birth to a baby girl before she passed away.

When the baby was born, she was out of danger. She’s still at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Today, family members told WJZ that the baby’s health is improving. According to her family, some of the tubes that helped her fight for her life were removed.

The shooting shocked Baltimore residents.

Family and friends were devastated. They left flowers and balloons outside the Smith house.

One of Smith’s friends, Christian, expressed disappointment over the tragic murder.

“She didn’t deserve it,” she said. “She was healthy enough to have a baby and I miss her. We are mourning her right now. We are broken”.

Police say the two parked their car in front of the house and were sitting in their car when someone started firing bullets at it.

WJZ spoke to fiance Smith’s cousin.

“Whoever knows him, he loves him very much,” said one cousin. “He trusts God. You know God. He is with God right now. ”

The murder of Smith and her fiancé was just one of many brutal shootings in Baltimore this week.

City dwellers say it’s another example of out-of-control violence.

“You don’t know you’re going to get shot down — to walk in the house, it’s your safe place, where you go to sleep, safe and at peace,” says Christian. “It’s not where you go to get knocked down. This is the kind of city we live in. “

Earlier this week, Governor Larry Hogan discussed the violence in Baltimore, including a separate incident when police said an assault rifle was used to shoot four people in East Baltimore.

Investigators recovered more than 60 rounds of ammunition fired in the 700 block of North Rose Street.

“We gave them, I think, $40 million, and we handled everything they asked us to do,” Hogan said.

The governor, who met Mayor Brandon Scott and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison, has begun publicly asking if the city’s crime prevention strategy is working.

“I would question whether they have to go back and rethink their strategy of fighting violent crime because it is clearly not working,” Hogan said.

Police have not announced any arrests. Contact 410-396-2100 if you have information about the deadly double shooting.
