Police found her dead at the scene. Her family told WSB that Harrison was eight months pregnant. The baby also died, the news station reported.

Police think the shot was fired from an upstairs apartment.

"Investigators are working to determine if the shooting was accidental and at this time there has been no arrest made," Atlanta Police Department spokesman Officer Jarius Daugherty told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a statement.

"She was a good person. She didn't bother anyone," her brother, who didn't want to be identified because the investigation is ongoing, told WSB. "She didn't deserve it."
