MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Family members have identified the woman who was fatally shot on a party bus outside a Milwaukee bar early Saturday morning.

The victim's father has identified her as Annie Sandifer. Family members said she was 33 years old and a loving mother of five.

Sandifer was on a party bus celebrating a family event when she was hit by a stray bullet. Her family members believe she was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was not the intended target.

She was 26 weeks pregnant, but doctors were able to perform an emergency C-section and deliver her baby. Her family said she delivered a baby boy.

Dozens of family members and friends gathered Saturday evening in the parking lot of Gene's Supper Club to honor Sandifer.
