Woman, 33, shot in N. Philadelphia

A 33-year-old woman was at Hahnemann University Hospital Tuesday night recovering from a gunshot wound to her left arm after a shooting on 10th Street near Brown in North Philadelphia, police said.

Shots were fired around 10:15 p.m. and 14 9mm shell casings littered the scene, said Chief Inspector Scott Small. It was unclear whether the woman was the shooter's intended target or if she was an innocent bystander, Small said.

Police in the Central Detective Division were combing the scene for additional evidence around 11:30 p.m., and Small said a surveillance camera at a nearby corner store may have recorded footage of the shooting.

The victim was listed in stable condition as of 11:30 p.m., and police were working Tuesday night to determine whether there were any witnesses to the shooting.
