MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin—Milwaukee police are searching for the person responsible for gunning down a pregnant woman early Saturday morning.

Jenny’s twin sister believes she was killed during an armed robbery.
“We lost everything. Our whole lives are broken,” Amy Her stated to WISN Monday morning.
During an emotional interview, Amy stated her sister named her daughter Amaya and was due in March.

Jenny had just held a gender reveal party two weeks before she was shot to death. Family members said Jenny’s boyfriend went outside to grab something from his car, according to WISN.

“I still have been texting her,” Jenny Her’s best friend, Shalesha Bergeron told WISN. “How much I love her and miss her. And how it’s hard to be without her.”
