Philadelphia police reportedly questioned a suspect in the fatal shooting of a pregnant woman and her unborn child as the city barrels toward setting a new record for homicides in a year.

Jessica Covington, 32, was seven months pregnant when she was shot multiple times in the head and stomach while unloading gifts from her car after returning from her own baby shower on Saturday, police and reports said.

Both Covington and her unborn child were pronounced dead at a local hospital later in the night, cops said in a statement provided to The Post.

“This heinous crime has sent shock waves throughout the country, and also highlights the intentional lack of regard that we are seeing for humanity,” Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said in a statement this week.

“And worse, all of this comes at a time when we are approaching another grim milestone. Soon, we will reach, and almost certainly surpass, 500 homicides in our beautiful city.”
