According to investigators, a man fired a shot from the 4800 block of Marvine Street. The suspect was shirtless and was wearing blue sweat pants.

“She was going to work,” said Bonilla. “It seems like shooting around and a lost bullet grabbed her. It’s sad.”
Jermaine Brown lives in the home just in front of where the woman was shot. Just 15 minutes later, he would have been pulling up from work in a direct path of the bullet.
“It can go down at any given time, at any given moment. Like, you just don’t know. You could have your kids out here and all that,” said Brown.
After obtaining surveillance video, police believe a man seen running away may have been the intended target.
“It’s just another tragic case of senseless violence. Here, you have a woman on her way to work, first thing in the morning, and this unfortunate incident happens. It’s very alarming, to say the least,” said Philadelphia Police Capt. Malachi Jones.
