BATON ROUGE - One neighborhood wants to take action after a pregnant woman was shot to death Friday night.

Neighbors along Ship Drive said they would like to see surveillance cameras installed after the tragic shooting that rattled their quiet neighborhood.

In order to make changes, neighbors said they'll organize meetings and have discussions about paying for surveillance cameras. They say they hope it's something they can all agree on to help ease their minds after such a tragic weekend.

"It's hard to imagine that someone would actually take someone's life and knowing she's carrying a child like that it tears you up," said Carolyn Franklin, neighbor.

Police say a man came to the door of 29-year-old Brittney Mills asking to borrow her car. When she refused, police say she was shot multiple times.

Mills was nine months pregnant and medical officials managed to save the baby. As of now, police say the baby is still stable.

Police still don't have any suspects.
