PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A man suspected of shooting a woman to death in a Wawa store in Wayne, Pa., on Thursday night is in custody.
The Wawa, on Sugartown Road, was still closed Friday morning, surrounded by police tape. Some employees were in the store, but it was unclear what was happening inside the store.
Radnor Police Supt. Christopher Flanagan says the shooter, who they have identified as Brian Kennedy of Wayne, knew his victim, but he has not said what the relationship is.
“They know each other,” he said, “but again, we want to get all the details together before we release any speculations. They definitely knew each other.”
The shooting happened around 8 p.m., when police say the Kennedy used a rifle to kill a woman in her 20s inside the store. Several shoppers were in the store at the time, and no one else was hurt.
Witnesses say the police arrived on the scene after the shooter got away in a black BMW. Other Delaware County police departments tried to help find him.
Kennedy was eventually found in Thornbury Park in Glen Mills, about a half-hour away. He was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
Auithorities have not identified the victim.
