Pregnant 14-year-old killed by stray bullet, family says

ATLANTA — The shooting death of two young ladies hours apart in an apartment complex has family and neighbors worried about their safety.

Channel 2's Audrey Washington spoke to the first victim's family, who identified her as Sonja Star Harrison. They say she was eight months pregnant.

The baby also died, her family members say.

Harrison was inside a unit at the Pavilion Place Apartments in southwest Atlanta when a bullet came through the ceiling and hit her, family members say.

Atlanta police are still looking into whether it was all just a terrible accident.


"Not only do you hurt that person, you hurt everybody and the family," Harrison's mother, Sonja Harrison, told Channel 2's Nicole Carr later in the day.

No suspects have been named and there's been no determination regarding accidental shootings in either case.

"I know I'm waiting on them to tell me something," Harrison said.

Carr made several attempts during the day to contact complex management. We wanted to know who lived above Harrison's sister.

Blinds remained closed, doors were locked and residents said the staff that is normally in the office all day had not been seen all day.

Police said just hours later, they got a call of a shooting in the same complex.

They say when they arrived, they found a 21-year-old woman shot in the head.
