An arrest warrant has been issued for Devon Guisherd in connection with the murder of a pregnant woman whose baby died following an emergency c-section.
Guisherd, 27, of the 4200 block of Penn Street in the city's Frankford section, was named a suspect by Philadelphia Police Captain James Clark late Tuesday morning. Police say they tried to serve a warrant at the suspect's Penn Street address, but he wasn't home.
He is now considered a fugitive, according to officials.
Megan Doto, 25, was eight-months pregnant when she was shot while sitting with a man outside a home on the 1500 block of nearby Adams Avenue Sunday.
Investigators say an unknown gunman wearing all black opened fire on a car along Griscom Street, striking her in the face.
"When I looked back at Megan, she was already struck in the face with the bullet. I'm attending to her because it's the only thing I know how to do -- was to attend to her," said neighbor and witness Christopher D'Agostino.
Medics rushed Doto to Temple University Hospital where she underwent surgery for an emergency c-section. Doctors pronounced Doto dead a short time later. Her baby boy died early Monday morning, according to police.
Doto's boyfriend and the newborn child's father told NBC10 the baby boy died less than an hour after his delivery. The hospital said that the baby died Monday at 1:13 a.m.
Police recovered no weapon at the scene, but two dozen shell casings were found a block away. Investigators said they believe one of Doto's friends was the intended target.
The shooter may have fled the scene in a late model white Ford Crown Victoria or light-colored Chevy Impala with tinted windows, according to investigators.
Loved ones say Doto had two other children - ages 4 and 6 -- and was originally from Bensalem. They also say she was planning on naming her newborn baby "Carmine."
"It’s very sad and very tragic that you have a young lady 25 years old in the prime of her life just shot and killed," said Cpt. James Clark. "It’s even more tragic that her baby was also killed."
The city is offering a $40,000 for information leading to the conviction of the killer.
Admin Note #2: Court records show that Guisherd is out on $100,000 bail awaiting trial on drug charges. He was charged with attempted murder in 2007. That case resulted in a mistrial. He was tried again earlier this year and found not guilty.
