Police on Tuesday released a photograph of a man wanted for allegedly shooting and killing a pregnant woman in Harlem over the weekend.
Justin Soriano, 40, shot Shanice Young, 31, at West 128th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard around 1 a.m. Sunday, hours after her baby shower wrapped up, cops said.
Soriano, the victim’s former boyfriend, was chasing around her current boyfriend with a gun before he targeted her, shooting her in the head, according to police.
Young was taken to Harlem Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Her unborn baby didn’t survive, cops said.
Soriano has nine prior arrests on his record. The most recent was in 2016 for criminal possession of a controlled substance. His other charges included resisting arrest, criminal sale of a controlled substance and assault, police sources said.
