Pregnant woman dead, son wounded in East Side shooting

YOUNGSTOWN — Gunfire during the high drama of an apparent love triangle left a pregnant woman and her unborn baby dead and a little boy shot in the head.

Police first on the scene in the 70 block of Center Street just past 1 p.m. Tuesday discovered that a beige Chevrolet had flipped to its side and landed off the street. Tall trees kept the vehicle from flipping again.

Coroner’s investigators removed the body of 29-year-old Helen Moore from the car at 2:25 p.m. Witnesses said she was due to give birth Sunday.

Her son, Ceonei Moore, 8, was in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Health Center on Tuesday evening.
