PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are investigating a deadly shooting in West Philadelphia that happened in broad daylight and neighbors are now demanding action. Police say a woman was shot and killed on North Millick Street, near 61st and Market Streets, around 7 a.m. Thursday.
Officers found the 45-year-old woman bleeding heavily on the street. Police say she was found just blocks away from her home, close to a parked vehicle.
Witnesses told police they heard one gunshot.
“Everybody heard just one shot so we believe only one shot was fired, at this time,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police hope real-time cameras and surveillance footage in the area can lead them to a suspect. Homicide detectives are currently trying to view them.
Police are calling this incident a brazen homicide.
“In broad daylight, right in the middle of rush hour, when people are out and about, it’s sad either way but it shows the callousness and the coarseness of someone to do that,” Philadelphia Police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew said.
So far, authorities have no motive and no suspects. Police are interviewing witnesses.
