BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
The Baton Rouge Police Department says a pregnant woman was shot twice Tuesday while sitting in her car on Bay Street in Baton Rouge. The suspect is believed to be her estranged husband; and today, June 19, is his 26th birthday.
The shooting happened on Bay Street just after 12:30 p.m., but Kayla Atkins, 23, was able to get away and she drove a couple of blocks to a parking lot on Choctaw Road near Scenic Hwy. where emergency officials found her.
The Special Response Team (SRT) continues to actively searching for the shooting suspect, Frank Atkins, 26.
Rosalyn Crump, the mother of the shooting victim, says her daughter is four months pregnant and is currently in ICU. Crump tells WAFB Frank Atkins to kill her daughter Sunday by beating and trying to strangle her. The suspect was arrested for that incident and got out of jail Monday.
"I'm just praying to the Lord that she pulls through this. And I hope some kind of way they keep this man where he's supposed to be," said Rosalyn Crump, the victim's mother.
When he was released from jail, Crump says he was ordered to wear an ankle monitor. Tuesday (today) was the day he was supposed to pick up his ankle monitor from the police department.
Police thought Atkins was inside his home on Bay Street, however, the SRT found no one inside.
According to court records, the victim filed for a temporary restraining order Monday, saying her husband was trying to kill her.
According to Crump, Kayla Atkins is in stable condition and is alert and talking at the hospital. The suspect is still on the loose.
Anyone with information relative to this incident is urged to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at 389-4869 or Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
