Pregnant woman shot and killed inside her car in random attack

In downtown Seattle, a man is suspected of killing a pregnant woman by shooting into her car. The man is currently being held by police on accusations of murder, assault, and illegal gun possession. The legal authorities are looking into the case, and formal charges are expected to be filed soon.

The shooting happened around 11:15 a.m. Tuesday when the suspect was caught on video firing into the vehicle of Eina Kwon, a 34-year-old woman. The police say there was no known contact between Kwon and the man before he approached her car and started shooting.

When police arrived at the scene, they were guided by eyewitnesses to the suspect, who was still in the vicinity. As the police took him into custody, he reportedly admitted to the crime.

Tragically, Kwon, who was 32 weeks pregnant, could not be saved despite being quickly rushed to the hospital. Her baby was delivered but also passed away later in the hospital. A report later confirmed that Kwon had been shot four times.

A 37-year-old man accompanying Kwon in the car was injured during the shooting and taken to the hospital, but was discharged on Wednesday morning.

Kwon was the owner of the Aburiya Bento House restaurant in Belltown. Friends believe that she and her companion were on their way to work when the incident occurred.

During questioning, the suspect claimed that he saw a gun in the car, which prompted him to open fire. However, detectives stated that this claim contradicts the video evidence from the shooting.

The name of the suspect has not been released, as charges are yet to be filed. His court hearing was scheduled for Wednesday, but he refused to enter the courtroom. Another court appearance is scheduled for Thursday. Records reveal that the suspect, who recently moved to Seattle from Illinois, has previous convictions.
