A shooting in the city's Brewerytown section late last night left a woman in critical condition, according to police.

Officers responding to gunshots in the area of 29th Street and Girard Avenue at 11:31 p.m. discovered an injured woman about two blocks away on the steps of a home on Stiles Street near Newkirk, police said.

The 22-year-old woman had been shot three times in the stomach and was taken to Hahnemann University Hospital by police. She remains there in critical condition today.

Police believe the woman was shot at 29th Street and Girard Avenue and stumbled to where she was found by police. Neither a motive nor a suspect has been identified in the shooting.
