Woman, 32, fatally shot on a Logan street; police search for suspect and motive

Philadelphia police are searching for a motive in the fatal shooting of a 32-year-old woman on a street in Logan.

The gunfire broke out Saturday, about 4:45 in the afternoon, on the 4800 block of North Broad Street, officials said.

The 32-year-old woman was walking south on North Broad Street when someone took aim and fired, hitting her in her midsection. Once she was shot, according to authorities, she ran inside a nearby delicatessen and collapsed.

Medics rushed her to Einstein Medical Center where she died.

Police secured the deli as they opened an investigation. Officials say it is not clear whether she was the target in the shooting, or just an innocent bystander. Investigators are also working to determine if the shooter was in a passing vehicle, a parked vehicle, or on foot. They do say no arrests have been made.
