POWELTON - Philadelphia police are still trying to identify two "persons of interest" in the murder of a popular community activist.

Winnie Harris, 65, was shot to death inside her home on the 300 block of North Holly Street back on February 3.

She was the executive director of a non-profit organization, and investigators are still not sure of a motive for the deadly attack.



Police are hoping to speak with two men captured on surveillance video in the neighborhood the night of her murder.

She was found in a second-floor bedroom with a gunshot wound to her stomach.

Harris was an active UC Green volunteer, responsible for planting thousands of trees in West Philadelphia and tending to various community gardens.
