Indiana Prosecutor: Pregnant teller wounded in robbery loses twins

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- A prosecutor says a pregnant bank teller has lost the twins she was carrying when she was shot in an Indianapolis bank robbery.

Katherin Shuffield, who was five months pregnant, was critically wounded in the robbery Tuesday morning at a Huntington Bank branch. Police have been searching for the gunman.

Marion County chief trial prosecutor David Wyser says one of the twins died Thursday night, and the other died Friday morning.

Authorities and the family had said the 30-year-old Shuffield had been wounded in the abdomen and was in critical but stable condition.
