Woman Killed In Front Of Her Daughter And Toddler She Was Babysitting

By Al Novack

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police believe the murder of a woman is linked to an ex-boyfriend.

A 27-year-old woman was shot multiple times execution-style inside her Hunting Park residence around 11:30 Tuesday night.

Police say the shooting appears domestic in nature. Investigators believe a former boyfriend entered her residence in the 3500 block of Old York Road and shot the young mother numerous times at point-blank range in front of her 6-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old boy she was babysitting.

Investigators say the suspect left his green Mercury outside the home and took off in another vehicle.

Authorities say the children were not hurt, but were taken to Temple University Hospital as a precaution.

The woman, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene.
