Suspect Arrested In Fatal Shooting Of Pregnant Harlem Mom


Police arrested the suspect accused of fatally shooting a pregnant mom after her baby shower in Harlem.

Justin Soriano, 40, was taken into custody Thursday morning in the Bronx in connection to the death of Shanice Young, 31.

“I helped her put her gifts in the car and I said, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow,’” her shocked father Thurman Young, 57, told the Daily News.

“She was going to have her baby in five days. She said ‘This baby is coming in five days, Daddy, get ready’. I said ‘I’ll be ready’. That’s the last thing she said to me.”

Her two daughters, ages 15 and 6, watched in horror from the car as EMS rushed Young to Harlem Hospital, where she died.

Shanice Young, 31, was killed by a gunshot to the head, just 5 days before her due date.
