A woman wound up shot after she got caught in the middle of a fight between two brothers in Philadelphia’s Kensington neighborhood last night.

The shooting began as a fistfight between two brothers around 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Philadelphia Police.

After the fight, the younger brother went to his girlfriend’s house along the 200 block of E Tioga Street, police said.

The man’s 33-year-old brother showed up at the house a short time later looking for his 28-year-old sibling.

The older brother then allegedly opened fire on his brother but missed -- striking the younger man’s girlfriend three times, according to police.

The 22-year-old woman was rushed to temple University Hospital in stable condition.

The alleged shooter -- who was recently released from prison -- fled the scene, according to police.
