Reward offered in Philly bystander fatal shooting
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - November 20, 2012 (WPVI) -- A $20,000 reward is being offered in the shooting death of a woman struck by a stray bullet during a birthday party in Philadelphia.
Investigators say 22-year-old Zykia Sanders was shot in the back as she ran away from a shooting scene early Saturday morning. Police say two men opened fire on the crowd outside an apartment building as the part wound down.
Although the shooters fired at least 15 rounds, Sanders was the only person struck. She was pronounced dead after arriving at a hospital.
Sanders was seeking a business administration degree from the University of Phoenix.
Homicide Capt. James Clark says investigators are still trying to determine who was the target of the shooting.
