    My condolences to the citizens of Indiana. It's almost unimaginable that this kind of violence exists in one place. I pray Indiana never has to get used to this. Who in their ever living right mind murders an 8 month pregnant woman?

    I usually just lurk but I am Fort Wayne and have been living in TX for 6yrs now. That is so sad to hear and I'm a little shocked. I'm not sure about the neighborhood where the two ladies were shot but the other two crime scenes are not the best neighborhoods. I wonder if the shooting involving the 2 women and unborn child is drug related? I think there was a shooting in Indy not too long ago where they shot 2 women and 2 babies over drugs.

    This is scary for me. My niece and her husband lives there. That's alot of murders in such a short time span for a very large city let alone Ft. Wayne.

    The first shooting, up here on Bloom Drive. The victims, shot multiple times, were Shantell Craighead and Rachel Roos. Roos was eight months pregnant. The Chief told us Tuesday, they thought this was a "domestic dispute." But, that's changed. Indiana's NewsCenter has learned it could be drug-related. Police are struggling to find suspects connected to this violent crime.
