Police investigating shooting death of trans woman in Hunting Park

Police are investigating after a 30-year-old trans woman was fatally shot in the back in Hunting Park.

The incident happened around 1 a.m. Wednesday on the 4300 block of Old York Road.

Officers say they found the victim laying in the street and that at least eight shots were fired.

The victim was transported to Temple University Hospital, where she later died.

Witnesses say the shooter fled in an older model black Ford pickup truck with bonding on it, tinted windows and no tailgate.

No arrests have been made at this time. This is an ongoing investigation.

Initial police reports erroneously indicated that the shooting victim was a man. This story has since been updated to reflect the true gender identity of the victim.
