Pregnant woman shot in Norcross; suspect arrested

NORCROSS -- Police have arrested a man they say fired five rounds through the door of a Norcross house, hitting a pregnant woman once.

Gwinnett County police said they arrested 35-year-old Raul Carrion-Jimenez at a Norcross apartment complex at 8:20 p.m. Friday. He faces charges of aggravated assault and aggravated battery.

Police said Carrion-Jimenez left the house Friday morning after arguing with his girlfriend. He returned about 3:15 p.m. looking for her. A woman who is about eight weeks pregnant told Carrion-Jimenez his girlfriend wasn't there and locked the door.

Police said Carrion-Jimenez then drew a pistol and fired. He fled when police were called.

The victim was taken to a hospital where police say her injuries were determined to be non-life-threatening for both her and the baby.
