Police Identify Woman Killed in Late Night Shooting in The Village
"I was lying in bed and I woke up to lights in my bedroom ."
A neighbor who doesn't want to be named describes the scene outside her home in The Village Thursday night .
"I heard the helicopter flying around and i thought something serious had happened."
"Officers received a call of a traffic accident on one of our streets around Plymouth and Sunnymeade," said Deputy Chief Steve Jagosh with The Village Police Department.
But when police arrived they found much more.
"The woman was unresponsive in the driver seat. She had several gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead on the scene," said Chief Jagosh
Police says Amber Stokke was backing out of her driveway when two men approached her.
"One comes up to the car, they exchange some words and at that point the shots were fired."
Stokke tried to drive away...but crashed into a fence about 4 blocks away.
Police say she was six months pregnant.
"In this state you can be charged with murder for an unborn child," Said Chief Jagosh
"We don't know if there was a relationship. What the relationship was. We just don't know."
Neighbors still can't believe it happened. "It freaked me out."
But say now they'll take extra precautions."I'll definitely be protecting myself a little more."
Police have not identified a suspect in the homicide and police are asking for anyone with information to call The Village Police Department at 405-751-1234.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- A preliminary hearing for two brothers accused of killing four women in Tulsa could resume soon.
The Tulsa World reports (http://bit.ly/16X0EnM ) a judge is expected to rule on a request that could determine whether James and Cedric Poore's hearing will resume Friday.
Their hearing stalled Thursday after the defense filed a motion to recuse the judge assigned to the case.
Special Judge Stephen Clark denied the motion, as did Presiding Judge William Kellough.
Kellough is expected to rule on the defense's request for time to appeal on Friday morning.
The Poores are charged with murder and robbery in the January deaths of Misty Nunley, Julie Jackson, Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor. The four women were found tied up and shot in the head.
The Poores have pleaded not guilty.
