DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Police have arrested the man they say shot a pregnant woman, who later died. 

Dallas Police say 25-year-old Lagarius Rainey shot and killed 21-year-old Delashon Jefferson, who was 8 months pregnant. This happened on Sunday night  at a home on Marburg Street in southeast Dallas. 

Reports say it started as an argument between the two. Police say Rainey was accusing Jefferson of being unfaithful, and started hitting her. Her family tried to intervene, and Rainey told police he felt afraid for his life. He started shooting.

Jefferson was shot in the back and taken to the hospital. She died of her injuries, but doctors were able to save her baby. 

Rainey is now in jail on a $350,000 bond and is charged with murder.​
