Pregnant ex-girlfriend shot, thrown from pickup; infant dies

A pregnant woman lost her infant after she was shot Monday and thrown from a moving pickup truck driven by her former boyfriend, who law enforcement said also attempted a carjacking before being wounded and arrested by authorities in Ogelthorpe County.

Hayley Nicole Hill, 23, was taken to the hospital in critical condition, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday. Her child was pronounced dead upon delivery at a local hospital.

Her former boyfriend, Ryan Arnold, 23, was wounded

“My dad was able to get his foot out from under the other guy’s and tried holding the gas pedal up, but that’s when he got shot one of the times in the leg,” Brandon Davis said.

The son called his father a hero.
