CHICAGO — A baby who was delivered after his mother was shot in the abdomen over the weekend in Chicago is doing well.

The baby was nearly full term when he was delivered shortly after Monday’s shooting in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

The newborn’s grandfather, Tyler Thomas, told the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday evening that “the baby is doing good.”

A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital says the mother and father, 23-year-old Crystal Myers and 24-year-old Albert Moore, were listed in critical condition Tuesday night. Moore was shot in the neck.

The couple were on a relative’s porch when a gunman opened fire and fled.

Police say the woman was not the intended target. No arrests have been announced.

They were among 43 people shot in Chicago over Labor Day weekend.
