Police released an image of the man Wednesday night.

Officers were called about 1 p.m. May 30 to the 9700 block of Forest Lane, where a group of men had been involved in a shooting.

Victoria Omisore, 32, was wounded as she walked through the parking lot after leaving Praise Embassy Church. She was taken to a hospital, where doctors delivered her baby.

Police said the gunmen fled in a black Ford Focus and a Champagne-colored Nissan sedan.

Omisore named her baby boy Marvelous.

“What God did for me that day is, oh my goodness, indeed God is marvelous,” she told KXAS-TV (NBC5).
