unborn baby shot in LA riots speaks out, Jessica evers, Elvira Evers Jessica Evers was an unborn 38-week-old baby during the 1992 L.A. Riots that took 55 lives, injured more than 2,300 people and racked up more than a billion dollars in damage.

Yet she was its youngest victim when her mother, Elvira Evers, (pictured left) was shot in the stomach on April 30, 1992, the second day of the riots.

But as she went inside, she felt her body was on fire. She did not notice she had been shot in the stomach until a neighbor pointed out the blood oozing onto her white dress.

‘I didn’t know I’d been hit,’ Evers said after the incident. ‘I just felt a little tingling.’

Knowing that an ambulance would take too long to arrive in the midst of the violence, a friend drove her to St. Francis Medical Center, where an emergency caesarian section saved her baby.
