NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A reward for information in the Wednesday night murders of a woman, a man and their unborn child has been increased to $5,000, according to Crimestoppers. 

Breon Stewart and Lionel Delpit III were sitting in a car in the parking lot of their New Orleans East apartment complex when they were both shot multiple times.

Stewart was nine months pregnant and preparing to deliver a boy sometime next week.

Police said they don't believe the shooting was random, saying at least one of the victims was targeted. They're urging anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. Callers do not have to give their names to receive the reward.
