Amber Dawn Stokke, 22, was shot multiple times in her car outside her home at 10305 Sunnymeade Place about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, Deputy Chief Steve Jagosh said. She was six months pregnant.
“I never thought something like that would happen around here,” a neighbor said Friday. “It made me sick when I found out she was pregnant. It's sad because she never had a chance, and I feel for her family because it's two losses, not just one.”
A witness, who was a passenger in Stokke's car, told police they were backing out of the driveway when they were confronted by a black male. Stokke and the assailant exchanged words before he fired several shots into the car, the witness told police.
Stokke drove away while the shooter and another black male, who stood in the yard during the shooting, ran south on Sunnymeade, the witness told police.
Stokke drove about three blocks north before the car crashed into a fence at the corner of Sunnymeade and Plymouth, police said. She died at the scene.
“Everything is still under investigation,” Jagosh said. “We have no suspects, just the two descriptions of the two black males. At this point, we have no indication that they knew the suspects or that they had any relationship at all.”
