VANCOUVER—A witness to the double-shooting in Vancouver that caused one woman to lose her unborn child says she's relieved that police have made an arrest in the case.

Dollie Middleton said she punched the man she alleges shot a pregnant woman and her friend, as he fled the scene of the shooting Friday morning.

Vancouver police have arrested 37-year-old Carleton Stevens of Surrey, B.C., for what they called a “targeted'' shooting.

They have previously said it is not gang related.

Stevens has been charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of possession of ammunition or firearm contrary to a prohibition order. Investigators said they expect more criminal charges to be laid.

Police made the arrest Sunday night and Stevens remains in custody.

The 31-year-old woman who was shot was in the third trimester of her pregnancy, police said, and remains in serious but stable condition. The 23-year-old man from Langley, B.C., is recovering from his injuries.

Middleton said she works at the print shop below the apartment where she said the female victim was staying and knows the male victim.

She said she heard a “ruckus'' Friday morning, saw some people she didn't recognize, then called to her own boyfriend for help.

Middleton said she heard a “pop'' and saw the woman, who said, “he shot me.''

“I could see her belly and a bullet hole and it really scared me. I was freaking out,'' Middleton said.

Middleton said the pregnant woman and the Langley shooting victim were friends.

When Middleton saw the man who she believed was responsible for the shooting, she said she started yelling at him.

“I needed him to know what he really was. You can't do this to women and children. You can't do this to anybody,'' she said.

“I just decked him and he decked me back.''

Middleton said he aimed a gun at her, too, but shot it at the ground.

Vancouver police have not confirmed Middleton's allegations and said no further information will be released, as the matter is before the courts.

Mom screams for help as she can't free herself from a ball pit in a mall

A mother in Singapore received the fright of her life after she climbed into a ball pit at City Square Mall’s Airzone with her son on February 3.

Vivien Weiqi shared a video to her blog, Beautiful Chaos, showing her completely submerged in the pool of balls. She sticks her hand above the surface and calls for help many times, until her domestic helper (who was taking the video) realizes she is in distress.

“Not long into the play, I lost my balance in the ball pit and fell backwards. I could not reach the bottom and I could not stand up. I tried to roll over, I couldn’t. I tried to find the net so I could grip it, I couldn’t. My son was stuck inside too,” she wrote alongside the video.

However, despite her panic, she doesn’t think the experience should put parents off letting their kids play in the pool, as long as there is adult supervision — adding that her husband will be accompanying her son in future.

A local report said that the play center’s operator was holding a safety review following Weiqui’s experience.
