A baby girl has died months after her mother was shot and killed just three days before her due date.

She was rushed to hospital, where she was pronounced dead, but her infant daughter, Milan, initially survived.

The teen’s aunt Gloria McGraw told the publication Milan never quite recovered and recently died. 

Gloria said she believed Ms McGraw tried to protect her unborn child during the shooting.

“She was so excited. She was filled with so much joy, something to live for,” Gloria told News4Jax.

“She wanted to be a paediatrician and she had the brains to do it,” she said, adding Ms McGraw had planned on attending university in January.

Ms McGraw was killed inside the apartment she lived in with her boyfriend, which can be seen riddled with bullet holes in news footage. 

According to an arrest warrant, police believe her partner may have been the intended target of the attack. 

No arrests have been made.
