Philadelphia police say they are looking for a gunman who fatally shot a couple in front of the woman's 11-year-old son.

WPVI-TV reports the shootings happened late Tuesday night in the city's Kensington section.

Investigators say the 31-year-old woman was getting out of her car when she was shot multiple times. Her 39-year-old male companion was shot and killed in the passenger seat.


Both were pronounced dead at the scene. The woman's son was in the backseat at the time, but he wasn't hurt.

The gunman fled and no arrests have been announced.

Investigators haven't released the names of the victims or any details on a possible motive.
