FAN Editor

A pregnant woman was shot and killed Monday night in Georgia while she was with her toddler, police said.

The woman was identified as 24-year-old Auriel Callaway, Athens-Clarke County Police Department spokesman Geof Gilland said at a press conference Tuesday.

Her child, believed to be 2 or 3 years old, was not injured, Gilland said.

However, Callaway’s unborn child did not survive.

The shooting broke out at 9:37 p.m. at the Clarke Gardens apartment complex in Athens, according to police. Callaway, who was four months pregnant, was a resident of the apartment complex, Gilland said.

Upon arrival, officers found her wounded at the scene. She was rushed to a local hospital, where she died, officials said.

Gilland said “multiple individuals” have been detained in the case for “investigative purposes.”

He noted that those detained were not all necessarily suspects, but could also be witnesses or persons of interest.

Jermaine Arnold, who knew Callaway and says she witnesses the shooting, remembered her as a “beautiful soul.”

“She really wasn’t out here as much … God took her away from us too early,” Arnold told ABC Atlanta affiliate WSB-TV.

The investigation into Callaway’s death is ongoing.
