A young boy tragically lost his life when he was shot by a pregnant woman.

Police arrested 26-year-old Brooke Craig of Texas on a charge of capital murder for shooting 7-year-old Kaden Green in front of his father and 2 siblings.

According to police, Craig went to the home of her boyfriend, 24-year-old Cameron Castillo, where he was spending time with his children.

When Castillo and Craig got into an argument, the father placed his 3 children in his car in an attempt to get away from the volatile situation.

Craig then shot in the direction of the vehicle and fired a shot at the boy.

Family members of Kaden’s mother, Courtney Green, believe that the shooting may have been triggered in a jealous rage over Kaden’s mother.

The boy was rushed to the hospital by a witness. Family members said that Castillo did not want to go to the hospital because there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Craig then got into Castillo’s car and the two fled the scene. Police eventually arrested them.

Authorities said Craig led police on a car chase before their arrests.

Both were booked into the Collin County jail.

Craig was charged with capital murder, evading arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Castillo was arrested for violating his parole, and additional charges may be coming, authorities said.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services took custody of Castillo’s 2 surviving children.
