The death of a pregnant, 20-year-old mother who was fatally shot in her bed Sunday morning while her 4-month-old son laid next to her,is being investigated by the California police.
Investigators are speaking to several people who were at the party in Amber Baker’s Fresno apartment when the six-weeks-pregnant woman was shot with little Ayden beside her, ABC 30 reports. Ayden was not injured.
“We are sad, mad and confused and out hearts are split wide open,” Baker’s father, Vance Baker, says. “We can’t even focus on nothing but Amber. And this sad death to my daughter is so unfair.”
He adds: “We want every one to know how great Amber truly was.”
Baker’s sister, Cassie, told the Fresno Bee that Baker invited some friends over to the apartment, which she shared with Cassie and three others, for a party. Cassie said she left the party early after an argument with Baker.
Police responded to the scene at Griffith Garden apartments at around 6 a.m. According to Cassie, one of Amber’s roommates told her of the shooting after finding Amber dead in the bedroom.
“Who would want to do this to her?” Cassie said. “Me and her, we were unstoppable together.”
The family has set up a GoFundMe fundraising page to cover funeral costs.
“Amber had a zest for life, her smile was contagious,” the family wrote on the page. “She brought laughter and smiles to all. Amber leaves behind a 4-month-old beautiful baby boy, Ayden. Her baby was the light of her life.”
This is sad.
