Woman suffers gunshot wound in South Philadelphia

A 21-year-old woman was hospitalized after she was shot in the leg in South Philadelphia Sunday night, police said.

The woman was shot on 20th Street near Jackson at 7:37 p.m. and taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania by medics, police said. No arrests have been made, and police have no information on a motive.

It was another in a spate of shootings that have plagued the area of South Philadelphia in and around the Point Breeze and Grays Ferry neighborhoods during the past two weeks. It is unclear whether this shooting is connected to others nearby, including a shooting Thursday night in which a 21-year-old man was shot three times five blocks from this incident, at 22nd and Sigel streets.
