According to police, the shooting took place after 1 a.m. outside of 300 W. 128th St. at Frederick Douglass Boulevard. Neighbors told CBS New York that the mother had returned from her baby shower and was taking gifts into the lobby with her current boyfriend and family when the gunman confronted them.

"I helped her put her gifts in the car and I said, 'I’ll see you tomorrow,'" Young's father, Thurman Young, told New York Daily News. "She was going to have her baby in five days. She said 'This baby is coming in five days, Daddy, get ready.' I said 'I’ll be ready.' That’s the last thing she said to me."

"I just can’t sleep — I guess I’m in shock," he said. "The whole of Harlem is mourning right now."
