"You never think it will be your sister," Shamari Reid choked back tears discussing the death of his 18-year-old sister, Latisha Shaw.

Shaw was pregnant when she was shot in northeast Oklahoma City around 9 p.m. on Sunday.

According to Oklahoma City police, Shaw and her friends got into a fight in the 2000 block of N.E. 28th Street.

After the altercation, Shaw began walking south on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue when she was shot.

A passing driver called police for help. When officers arrived, they found Shaw lying in the parking lot of the House Authority with a gunshot wound. She was rushed to the hospital where she died from her injuries.

Shaw's family is trying to come to terms with what happened.

"I mean you watch these things and you say, oh that's crazy, I can't believe that happened, but never once did I think it would be my sister," Reid said the entire family is mourning the loss.

The deaths of Shaw and her unborn child are being treated as a double homicide.

Police have not released a description of the suspects. No arrests have been made.
