Infant dies in hospital weeks after being born by emergency C-section

Toronto police identified Candice Rochelle Bobb, 35, as the pregnant woman fatally shot May 15. There have been no arrests in the case.

Toronto police are consulting the Crown on whether or not to pursue a second murder charge after a baby delivered by emergency C-section died three weeks after his mother was shot to death.

The infant boy, who was born at just 24 weeks, died in hospital on Sunday.

His mother, 35-year-old Candice Rochelle Bobb, was fatally shot while in the back seat of a car on May 15, near John Garland Boulevard and Jamestown Crescent in suburban Rexdale, Ont.

Toronto police are still seeking information about the case. They have yet to arrest anyone or release any details about suspects.

Police said they believe Bobb, who lived in neighbouring Mississauga, Ont., was returning home from a basketball game when the car she was in was sprayed with bullets. Police suspect the vehicle was targeted, but that Bobb was likely not the intended victim.

Three other people in the vehicle were unharmed.

Bobb's family has asked for privacy.
