UNIVERSITY PARK (1080 KRLD) - A woman and her baby are still in the hospital after she was shot in University Park over the weekend.

The unidentified woman was shot while working in the CVS store on Mockingbird adjacent to the SMU campus early Saturday. 

Investigators say the woman, who was eight months pregnant, was working at the store when she was confronted by an armed man demanding money. He shot her twice before running away from the store empty-handed, police said. Police released a video of the suspect entering and leaving the store on Monday

Authorities say doctors were able to perform emergency surgery to get the baby boy out. University Park Assistant Chief of Police Jim Savage says he and his mother remain in critical but stable condition.
