Roberts is suspected of killing the woman in the apartment and her unborn child.
The shooting comes amid a growing national discussion about gun violence and its effect on communities.

Roberts was a former soldier who was stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
He had been in a relationship with the woman for several months, according to police.
A relative said Roberts was in the process of getting a divorce from his wife of nine years.
He lived with the victim in the couple’s apartment in Baltimore.
A Baltimore police spokesman says the mother and baby are safe.
Police say Roberts was armed with a 9 mm handgun.
