KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The pregnant woman who was struck by gunfire last week during a shooting at Independence Center died Thursday after family took her off life support.
Karla Brown, 19, was shot in the head after she sat down in a chair 30 feet from the mall entrance after a group of people she was with became involved in a verbal altercation that turned violent in the mall breezeway last Friday afternoon.
Brown remained on life support for several days as the family started the organ-donation process.
Brown was 20 weeks pregnant with a son she planned to name Max. Doctors lost his heartbeat on Saturday.
A family friend established a GoFundMe, which provides additional details about Brown
