(NEW YORK) — Police are investigating the Jan. 8 death of a pregnant woman who was shot inside of a vehicle in an Amazon Fulfillment Center parking lot in Lakeville, Minnesota. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital that evening.

Staff at the Hennepin County Medical Center delivered the baby later that night, according to police. The baby’s condition is currently unknown, and the mother’s identity has not yet been released.

Amazon told ABC News that the company is working with police as they continue to investigate the incident. Amazon confirmed McCray’s employment with the company, according to an Amazon spokesperson.
