LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Called to the scene, police discovered a grisly sight on the 9100 block of Castle Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida. They had been called to the scene after there was a report of an argument and a shooting.

Video, taken by neighbor Christopher Cash shows the victim slumped in a chair as neighbors rush to help her. The suspect, 35-year-old Virginia Wyche, has since been taken into custody.

The unidentified pregnant victim slumped into a chair after she was shot in the stomach. Her baby didn't survive.


The unidentified victim was taken to a local hospital and survived. Her unborn baby was pronounced dead on arrival. 

"They were arguing out front, something about Facebook. I walked out and just heard a pop," Cash told TV reporters.

Virginia Wyche and the victim had a disagreement over Facebook, which led to a fight during which Wyche allegedly shot the victim in the stomach.


Witnesses say the two women got into an argument on Facebook the night before. The victim went to Wyche's house to confront her about the disagreement.

The argument turned physical, and that's when Wyche allegedly shot the pregnant victim.

It

It's unclear what prompted the disagreement between Wyche (pictured) and the pregnant victim.


"I know the victim was definitely shot in the abdomen. That's the one gun shot that I know of. That's why the consideration and concern for the unborn child's health," Jacksonville Sgt. Michael Paul said.

The suspect's mother, Lillian Jordan, told reporters that she is as confused as everyone else about what led up to the shooting at her home.

"My son called me and I was very disturbed about this because this is not the way I was raised, and they (were) not raised like this," Jordan told reporters.

The pregnant victim went to Wythe

The pregnant victim went to Wythe's home (pictured) to confront her about the Facebook argument.


"Somebody had to provoke my child ... to do what she (did). I don't know if she was trying to defend herself, or if they (were) trying to jump on my child, I can't say."

Wyche was booked into jail on one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.

Investigators say they will continue to look into whether the suspect shot the victim in self-defense.
