A pregnant woman was forced to give birth two months early in Georgia after being shot three times by an Uber driver.

The 36-year-old woman, who was seven months pregnant with her first child, ordered an Uber to take her to her family's apartment complex in College Park, near Atlanta, on Saturday night. However, she noticed the car that arrived to pick her up didn't match the description provided on the app.

A white vehicle showed up at her location, but the app said her car would be black. The victim, who hasn't been publicly identified, questioned the driver about the discrepancy and an argument broke out between them, WXIA reported.

Their argument went on throughout the trip, according to the outlet. The driver then dropped off the woman at her destination.

Things didn't end here, however. Before the woman could make it back home safe, the driver shot her.

The victim's father, Kenneth Anderson, said he had just returned home from work at that time and even saw his daughter getting out of the cab.

"A couple of seconds later, I got off the bed to go to my bathroom and I heard gunshots," he said, as per the outlet. "I ran back to the window and saw my son. He was laying on the ground on top of her."

The father said the mother-to-be was shot once in her stomach and twice in her upper thigh.

"I was running wild. I probably dialed 911 like ten times," he added. "I kept screaming. When police pulled up, I started screaming at them telling them to come up and seek medical."

The victim was rushed to the Grady Memorial Hospital where she underwent a C-section and emergency surgery. Both the mother and the prematurely born baby are now in stable condition and are recovering at the hospital.

"Her and my grandbaby are a miracle," Anderson told CBS46. "God was there with both of them. For them to come through the way they're doing, God already touched my grandbaby. He was crying, kicking and stuff. And it just made me smile real big. I know they going to be alright."

The father said it will still take weeks for his daughter to be able to come back home. He hopes the shooter will soon be arrested.

"Whoever you is (sic), wherever you at, turn yourself in," Anderson told the outlet. "They are going to get you."

Following the incident, Uber released a statement to CBS46, saying, "The details surrounding the horrific act of violence towards the rider and her newborn are nauseating, and our thoughts are (with) them as they recover. We stand ready to assist law enforcement with their investigation."

Meanwhile, the victim's family set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds to offset the medical expenses.
