Authorities have identified a woman killed during a shooting rampage in Philadelphia as the 25-year-old daughter of Ethiopian immigrants.

Police say Sara Salih was fatally wounded while sitting in a vehicle Friday night with a 36-year-old man, who was also shot.

The pair was apparently targeted at random by 25-year-old Nicholas Glenn. Glenn had already shot city police Sgt. Sylvia Young and two other civilians in the Friday overnight attack.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/2cprBbj ) Sara's father heard the gunshots from the family's apartment but didn't know his daughter had been shot and killed until after he got home from work Saturday afternoon.

Glenn was killed in a shootout with police that also injured a responding officer. Police say all the injured are expected to survive.
