Family Of Mom Killed In Shooting Wants Answers

Posted: Updated:

A grieving family wants answers in the shooting that killed a mother and injured her five-year-old daughter.

The mom and her daughter were shot at while they were waiting in their car in Southwest Philadelphia Tuesday on the 7300 block of Theodore Street.

Homicide detectives are looking closely at surveillance video from a restaurant near where the shooting took place.

But as detectives investigate this case, the victim's family is trying to understand how it could have happened.

Police say 31-year-old Aleesha Canty was sitting in her car waiting for her boyfriend. Her daughter was sitting in the backseat.

Without warning, two gunmen opened fire repeatedly, killing her and wounding her daughter.

Fox 29 reporter Claudia Gomez has more in the video above.
