PREGNANT WOMAN SHOT IN CHARLESTON - WSAZ-TV is reporting a shooting Sunday afternoon that has left a pregnant young woman in critical condition.

Police say the shooter is a 15-year old boy.

Police say Nastasha Folden is the victim that was shot by the teen.

Nastasha's mother was just a few feet away and watched the whole scene unfold, said WSAZ-TV.

Nastasha's mom says, "She was sitting inside the van and he climbed inside and put the gun on her and shot her repeatedly. Myself and my other two daughters were there. We could have been shot also, but we ran."

Charleston police were able to catch the boy a few blocks away.

Nastasha was five months pregnant. The baby didn't survive the shooting.

Her mom says this shooting wasn't an accident but a retaliation brought on by rumors of another crime in the area.

Nastasha's mom says, "I'm not angry at that little boy. I'm angry at the adults that put that in his mind that my daughter had something to do with his sister being shot. It's just bad all the way around and nobody thinks until it's already done. And then you can't take back what's already done."

Police say the teen suspect is being held in a juvenile detention center.
