Philadelphia police are hoping surveillance video will lead them to the gunman who left a woman critically injured in the city's Logan section.

The shooting happened at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday near 11th and Rockland streets.

Action News is told the 42-year-old victim was shot once in the neck while sitting in a gold Honda.

She was rushed to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where she remains in critical condition.

The gunman fled the scene in a gold Lincoln Town Car.



Investigators are now examining surveillance video in an effort to track him down.

Police say the shot was fired from almost a block away in the 4800 block of Marvine Street, by a suspect described as a black male wearing no shirt and blue sweat pants.

The surveillance video shows the victim's Honda around the time she was shot. The Honda pulls forward to 11th Street then stops.

At the same time, the video shows a young black man wearing a backpack walking east in the 11th Street crosswalk.

Video from another camera across the street shows him appearing to look back at one point.

Investigators say they would like to talk to him as a witness, because it is possible he might have been an intended target of the gunman.

Anyone with information about the suspect or case is asked to contact Philadelphia Police.
