KTLA Reports: Authorities are searching for two men accused in the shooting death of a pregnant woman and her unborn child in the South Robertson area of West Los Angeles.

The apparent gang-related shooting was reported around 9:15 a.m. Wednesday in the 1900 block of Corning Street, according police.

Two men got out of a sport utility vehicle, walked up to the woman and shot her as she stood outside an apartment building with two male friends, according Sgt. Gary Levy of the LAPD's West Los Angeles division.

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she died.

Doctors attempted to save her unborn child, but the infant also died, Levy said.

The suspects were described as two men -- one Hispanic and one African American -- last seen driving a gray Jeep Liberty.

There's no word on a motive in the attack.
