PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police are on the hunt for a man they suspect shot and killed his girlfriend with the couple's newborn daughter in the room.

At approximately 4 a.m., police responded to a shooting on the 6300 block of Woodstock Street. When they arrived, they found a 24-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the head.

Police say there was no forced entry but there appeared to be a struggle as furniture had been overturned.

Her 5-day-old newborn girl was unhurt in a crib in that same bedroom. The baby is under evaluation at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.

They are planning to speak with the woman's boyfriend who was not home at the time.

Police are still investigating.
