An 18-year-old pregnant woman was shot dead as she was sitting in her car in a Florida park in what police are investigating as a homicide, authorities said.
An officer patrolling the area discovered her body when he came across a car that appeared to be running while backed into a parking spot, according to police.
Fiengo had gone to the park area Friday “with the intent to meet a person known to her,” authorities said.
Fiengo’s family members said the teen was 12 weeks pregnant with her second child at the time of her death. She is survived by her 1-year-old son, Ace.
“She was targeted,” Kailyn’s dad, Ricky Fiengo told the station WESH. “I believe she was. Deep down a feeling…I believe she was.”
The heartbroken father said his daughter was a fun-loving, happy person but took her role as a parent very seriously.
“Kaylin was a very vivacious, loving, funny, and caring young woman who loved her son immensely,” her mother, Sarah Schweickert, said in a statement.
The deaths of Kaylin Fiengo and her unborn child are being investigated as a double homicide, but police believe the incident was isolated.
No suspects had been identified as of Tuesday morning, and no arrests had been announced.
