(AP) AMBRIDGE, Pa. - Police have been searching for two men who were present when a pregnant western Pennsylvania woman was fatally shot as she opened her apartment door.

Ambridge police say the shooting happened about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The Beaver County coroner has identified the woman as 19-year-old Conekia  Finney.

An autopsy was scheduled later Monday, though investigators expect it will confirm she died of the gunshot wound to her chest. The woman was about seven months pregnant and her unborn child died as well.

Ambridge is about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

Ambridge police say Finney was shot immediately upon opening the door of the apartment where she lived with her boyfriend. Police haven't speculated as to a motive or named any suspects, saying two men wearing hoods approached her when 1 of them fired.
