Miami, FL (April 10, 2019) – On Tuesday, a man was accused of shooting his pregnant girlfriend at their Miami home and has since been arrested for his crimes.
The man has since been identified by police as 29-year-old Raymond Xavier Deltoro, who is now facing charges of attempted murder and aggravated battery of a pregnant victim. The shooting took place on Saturday in the 4300 block of Northwest 11th Place.
The victim and Deltoro have been in a relationship for five years and, at the time of the shooting, the victim was 38 weeks pregnant. After an argument, Deltoro punched her in the face. She told him to leave, which is when he left and closed the door behind him. She thought he left and so she opened the door, which is when she found Deltoro pointing a gun at her.
Deltoro told her that he was going to shoot and she said that he opened fire through the glass front door, which hit her twice in the chest right above her heart. Deltoro then immediately fled the scene.
The mother survived and gave birth to her child.
