Gunfire rang out in separate parts of the city Tuesday, leaving one woman dead and a second critically wounded in unrelated incidents.



The shootings followed a day last week when three women were slain in the city in one day, a relatively unusual occurrence.

At about 1:10 p.m. a 25-year-old woman was fatally shot outside on the 1200 block of Sanger Street in the city’s Frankford neighborhood, police said.


The victim, whose name was not released, was shot several times and was rushed by police to Einstein Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 1:53 p.m.





Earlier in the day, about 7:30 a.m., a 42-year-old woman was critically wounded when she was shot while driving a car in the city’s Logan section, police said.

A bullet pierced through the windshield of her gold Honda and struck her in the face as she was driving west on Rockland Street, near 11th, police said.

Police said the shooter, whom the woman did not know, was a shirtless man wearing blue sweatpants who was firing a weapon on nearby Marvine Street. He fled in a gold Lincoln Town Car.

This woman reportedly may have been hit by a stray bullet. A surveillance video obtained by FOX29 shows a man running across the intersection at the same time as the victim’s car turned right onto 11th Street and came to a halt. FOX29 said police were trying to determine if the man was the intended target.



Medics took this woman to Einstein Medical Center in critical condition.

Last Wednesday, Lylliana Mendoza, 35, and her stepdaughter Aslemarie Torres, 19, were fatally shot on the 3000 block of Lawrence Street in Fairhill while sitting in a red pickup truck. They were pronounced dead there at 12:19 a.m.

Then, shortly after 7 a.m., Rosalind Wicks, 57, was stabbed four times in the neck and also assaulted with a hammer in her home on the 5500 block of North Hill Creek Drive in Crescentville. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:38 a.m. Wicks’ daughter was transported to Einstein Medical Center for a head injury that was also inflicted by the offender during a struggle, police have said.

No arrests have been reported in any of the shootings.
