A 58-year-old woman was shot in the arm and chest early Saturday after she heard a noise outside her home in the 8500 block of Summerdale Avenue and went to her window to investigate, Philadelphia police said.

The victim got up from her bed after hearing the noise and noticed that a screen window had been opened. She closed the window and lay down again, then was struck by gunfire that came from outside, police said.

She called 911 and was taken by police to Aria-Jefferson Health Torresdale hospital. She was treated and transferred to Jefferson University Hospital, where she was listed in stable condition, police said. Police did not provide information about any possible suspect.
