Homicide Capt. James Clark said police are "all over the city" looking for a the live-in boyfriend of a Hunting Park woman who was shot to death last night in her home while two small children slept in the next room.

Police are searching the streets for Dominique Haynes, 33, whom they described as a "person of interest" in the murder of his girlfriend, 27-year-old Rasheedah Blunt. Blunt was shot multiple times in her apartment on Old York Road near Tioga Street around 11:30 p.m. last night.

Sleeping in the next room when she was shot were Blunt's 6-year-old daughter and the 3-year-old son of a friend, police said.

Blunt and Haynes had been dating for six months and living together for three, Clark said. A loud fight overheard by a neighborhood preceded the shooting.

Haynes was recently released from jail. A gun was not found at the scene and police said he should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call homicide detectives at 215-686-3334.
