    A pregnant woman who was shot in the head during an incident at a Round Lake home earlier this week has died, authorities said Saturday. 

    Charges were filed earlier this week against the woman's husband, and the Lake County Major Task Force said that more charges are likely after the woman's death. 

    About 2 p.m. Tuesday, Alvin L. Quinn, 30, drove to a home in the 600 block of West Nippersink Road with his 25-year-old wife to collect items they had left behind after moving, according to a statement from the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force.

    When the couple arrived, Quinn got into an argument with someone inside the home and there was a struggle over a gun that Quinn brought with him, authorities said.

    During the struggle, the gun went off and the woman was shot in the head, the task force said. The woman was taken to a hospital and remained in critical condition Wednesday.

    Her fetus did not survive, authorities said. An autopsy was conducted earlier this week, but additional information has not been released by the Lake County corner’s office.

    Quinn was charged with involuntary manslaughter of a child and reckless discharge of a firearm, the task force said.
