POWELTON - A vigil was held Saturday evening for a community activist, who was gunned down inside her home.

People gathered in Philadelphia's Powelton section to remember Winnie Harris.

The 65-year-old was found shot to death inside her home on Feb. 3.



And her killer remains on the loose.

Harris' nephew says she was very active in the community, especially when it came to planting trees and community gardens.

"She wasn't just anybody that you could do anything to and take anything from. She was a loving mother, aunt, family member, cousin, and that's what we're here for. We're here to make sure that some type of justice is still being served," said Harris' nephew.

The family is asking anyone who has information about this case to contact police.
