The young mother crashed and died at the scene. Three children and two other women who were in the van were injured.
“It appears that the van was struck about at least five times by gunfire. We found five bullet holes on the driver’s side of the van as well as the driver door. That appears how the 23-year-old female driver was shot,” Philadelphia Chief Inspector Scott Small said.source
