Shots rang out on Carolina Street early Wednesday morning, leaving a pregnant woman dead. According to Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper, 19-year-old NaToyedre Barrow was eight months pregnant when a bullet fatally wounded her.

“We received a call about 2:37 this morning to the 800 block of Carolina Street to the apartments,” Cropper said. “When officers arrived, there was a deceased black female laying on the floor. Officers attempted CPR on her until an EMT arrived.”

She was pronounced dead at the scene. The unborn child was also dead.

As police began their homicide investigation, it was discovered the shots were fired from outside of the apartment, through the walls.

“At least six rounds were fired,” Cropper said. “[We] found six casings.”
