Officials say a woman was found suffering from gunshot wounds inside a home after police shot an armed man in the Kensington section of Philadelphia Wednesday night.

Investigators say seven police officers, at least three of them with SEPTA, approached an armed man on the 400 block of East Somerset Street around 7:30 p.m. after responding to a report of a person with a gun. The man allegedly pointed the gun at the officers who opened fire. The man was struck at least once and taken to the hospital where he is in stable condition.

After the shooting, witnesses told police about a woman who had been shot in a nearby home. Police went inside the home and found the woman suffering from at least one gunshot wound to the chest or back. She was taken to Temple University Hospital where she is currently in critical condition.

One of the responding officers was wearing a body camera. Investigators will review the video. They have not yet revealed whether the man who was shot was involved in the incident inside the nearby home.
