Woman shot in Bustleton

A wo­man with pink hair and her red-bearded com­pan­ion am­bushed a 23-year-old wo­man in a parked van out­side a Bustleton apart­ment com­plex on June 18, shoot­ing the vic­tim five times.

The at­tack­ers re­main at large, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The shoot­ing oc­curred at about 3 p.m. on the 9900 block of Hal­de­man Ave. Po­lice learned of the vi­ol­ence when a man drove the vic­tim to the 7th dis­trict sta­tion. Of­ficers took her to Aria Health-Tor­res­dale in crit­ic­al con­di­tion. She re­portedly had wounds of the chin, neck, left arm, left thigh and ab­do­men.

Au­thor­it­ies have not re­leased the iden­tity of the vic­tim, who re­portedly was vis­it­ing friends at a nearby apart­ment. A motive for the at­tack is un­known.

The wo­man shoot­er was de­scribed as heavy-set with pink hair, while the man was de­scribed as thin with a red beard and black base­ball cap. They were last seen on foot north­bound on Hal­de­man. ••
