Police say a 54-year-old woman was shot and killed after an apparent fight in West Philly.

Police say a 21-year-old man died at Temple University Hospital after being found shot in Kensington. Police are still trying to piece together exactly where the shooting happened.

Police say they found the man on East Indiana Avenue and Rorer Street around 2:30 a.m. on Friday.

Initially, police responded to a call for an accident with injuries. Police say they found the 21-year-old bleeding from his chest inside a Jeep. But once they got to Temple Hospital, they realized he had been shot, authorities say.

Police say they found no ballistic evidence for blocks, but there's a clear bullet hole inside the vehicle.

Also in Kensington, police say a woman in her 20s was shot in her abdomen. The incident occurred around 2 a.m. on North Front Street and West Montgomery Avenue.

Police say they arrived on the scene and found a Chrysler 200 involved in a crash and the woman slumped over in the seat. She was unresponsive once she arrived at Temple Hospital and placed in very critical condition.

Witnesses and a passenger inside the vehicle told police the woman was driving the Chrysler north on Front Street when shots were fired. Police say the vehicle had two bullet holes and they found four spent shell casings on the 1700 block of Front Street.
