A 17-year-old girl who was 5 1/2 months pregnant was shot in the head and left to die on Christmas Day in Chicago. 

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Eva Casara was visiting with her grandmother when she stated she was stepping out. Hours later, police found her in the snow between two homes in the suburban town of Dolton. 

Although Eva did not survive, doctors were able to keep her alive long enough to save her child. The baby girl was delivered weighing about a pound and a half. The baby is now fighting for her life in the neonatal intensive care unit at Advocate Christ Medical Center according to the report.

As for Eva's attacker(s), police say she was shot in the back of the head and her purse, money iPhone and coat were gone. Police believe her body was dumped blocks away from where she was actually shot and could have video surveillance from where her body was dumped.
