PREGNANT WOMAN SLAIN

A woman who was seven months pregnant was shot and killed as she left her apartment in Ambridge Sunday evening.

The 19-year-old woman, who lived with her boyfriend in an apartment in the 200 block of Merchant Street, was walking out the door at around 8:25 p.m. to meet her mother when two men in dark clothing with hoods pulled over their face approached her. Wordlessly, one man pulled out a gun and shot her in the chest at point blank range, said Ambridge Patrolman Timothy Depenhart. The woman died at the scene.

The two then turned and ran, disappearing into back roads. Patrolman Depenhart said police do not know if they had a car.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call 724-775-0883.

"We are going to win Pennsylvania but we're not taking anything for granted, which is what good campaigns do," argued Obama campaign manager Jim Messina in a conference call this morning.

The state has not been the battleground it has in years past, which was partially reflected in the lack of network television advertising: through last week the Obama and Romney campaigns spent $100 million in Ohio to just $5 million next door in Pennsylvania.

Most polls have lately shown the Democratic incumbent leading his Republican challenger by about 5 percentage points in the state, which has a tantalizing 20 electoral votes at stake.
