House shooting leaves 1 woman dead, another in custody in Northeast Philadelphia: police

A young woman is dead after at least one shot was fired inside a Northeast Philadelphia home early Saturday morning.

Police say they found a 24-year-old shot in multiple times when they responded to a house on the 2400 block of Welsh Road shortly after 1 a.m.

She succumbed to her injuries at a local hospital a couple of hours later, and was later identified as Mytiara Boyd.


A 25-year-old woman who stayed on the scene was taken into custody, according to authorities. One gun was also recovered.

It is unclear what led to the shootings, and if the women knew each other. Police say charges are pending as they investigate.
