The woman who was shot in the head on Sunday afternoon in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia died the following morning.

Police confirmed to Action News that 25-year-old Christina Figueroa died at 8:30 a.m. on Monday.

It was around 4:30 p.m. Sunday when police were called for a report of a shooting at the intersection of Ruth Street and East Orleans Street.

Investigators said on Tuesday they still had no known motive for the killing.

Police continue looking for two suspects, both described as thin Hispanic males, last seen fleeing on Indiana Street in a white coupe, possible an Acura or a Honda.
