    Two men opened fire on a woman overnight as she sat on a friend's porch along a Philadelphia street.

    Philadelphia Police responded to the 2400 block of Braddock Street in the city’s Kensington neighborhood around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday to find the woman lying on a neighbor's steps.

    Police rushed the 24-year-old woman to Temple University Hospital in very critical condition suffering from three gunshot wounds to her torso.

    "We found 10 spent shell casings on the sidewalk and on the street within feet from where this 24-year-old victim was sitting on the front steps of a friend's," said police Chief Inspector Scott Small.

    Police didn’t reveal a motive but did say that two men wearing hoodies could be seen fleeing the scene.
