A fight that broke out at a wedding reception in North Philadelphia on Wednesday night ended with a 26-year-old woman being shot once in her right thigh.
The altercation began at 9:07 p.m. between two women inside The Venue banquet hall on the 4200 block of McAllister Street, police said. It then spilled onto the street, where a third woman intervened and shot the 26-year-old.
Police haven't made any arrests yet, but they're confident they will apprehend the shooter, 6ABC reported.

The 26-year-old drove herself to the police station and was brought to Temple University Hospital, where she's expected to survive.
