PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a deadly shooting on I-95 in Philadelphia.

Officers responded around 9 p.m. Thursday to a shooting along the northbound lanes of the highway near the Academy Road exit in the Torresdale section of Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania State Police say they received a report of a woman who had shot herself while inside a moving vehicle.

Police found the female victim suffering from a gunshot wound to her head. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

There were reports that the fatal shooting was being investigated as a homicide, however, in a news release sent to Action News Friday afternoon, state police say it appears to be self-inflicted.
