A pregnant woman was killed by a stray bullet outside of a Mississippi nightclub early Sunday morning — and her alleged killer has been arrested, a report said.
Takila Gross, 30, a mother-of-two, was inside a car near Roosevelt’s Club in Marshall County when the gunfire erupted during a fight outside the location at about 2:30 a.m., according to WREG-TV.
Gross was struck in the head and pronounced dead on scene.
“She was with friends and they were just having a little night out and she was just an innocent bystander. She was actually on her phone when it happened,” Gross’ mother, Jacgueline Brownlee, told the outlet.
“She was just always smiling. She never met a stranger. People always just attached themselves to her,” the heartbroken mother said of her daughter.
Following the shooting, Gross’ alleged killer, Andre Norman, 38, fled the scene, but was later captured.
He was charged with first-degree murder and held on $1 million bond.
