(Newser) – An 18-year-old gang member has confessed to killing a pregnant mom, who died on Friday as she shielded a group of children from bullets, but insisted he “did not mean to shoot the ladies,” sources tell the New York Daily News. In addition to Zurana Horton—who was a mother of 12—another mom and an 11-year-old girl were wounded by rooftop sniper Andrew Lopez, who told police his dozen rounds were intended for members of a rival gang. Lopez has been charged with murder; his two half-brothers, 17 and 22, were also arrested.
