FORT WORTH -- A woman who was due to deliver a baby this week was found bound with duct tape and shot in a car parked just off Airport Freeway in a northeast Fort Worth neighborhood, police said Sunday.

The victim, identified as Denishia Carver, 23, of North Richland Hills, was taken to a hospital. Her condition was unavailable Sunday night.
An officer arrested Cornelius Hawkins, 39, of Euless at the scene. He is expected to be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon causing bodily injury to a family member.

As of late Sunday, police had not released details of the relationship between Hawkins and Carver.
A patrol officer stopped in the 3400 block of Noble Avenue shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday and saw a man walking around a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt.
The officer ordered the man to back away from the vehicle and arrested him.
Carver was found in the car, which she owns, the police report says.
On her Facebook page, Carver wrote Friday that doctors were to induce the birth of her daughter Wednesday.
"I'm in constant pain and I am just ready for my sweetie to be here!:)," Carver wrote.
In other posts, Carver said she bought a car seat and stroller in November and heard the baby's heartbeat in October.
Carver is the mother of a 4-year-old daughter.
