CHARLOTTE — The newborn delivered after her mother was shot at a school bus stop in North Carolina has died.

Multiple media outlets reported that Charlotte police said the daughter of 15-year-old Tiffany Wright died early Sunday. Wright was 32 weeks into her pregnancy when she was shot and killed before dawn Sept. 14 as she waited for a school bus.

Doctors delivered Wright’s baby, but the newborn was in critical condition at Carolinas Medical Center from the start.

Wright’s adoptive brother, 36-year-old Royce Mitchell of Charlotte, has been charged with statutory rape and indecent liberties with a child. Police said Wright was the victim of those
crimes. He has a bond hearing Friday.

Wright’s funeral will be Tuesday at Calvary Christian Church.
