Bartender Shot in The Head, Accused Shot Himself; Mother of 2 Killed

Gwendolyn Anderson fought for her life and fought to remain with her two children.

The 29-year-old mother had been shot in the head by a patron she knew at a West Philadelphia bar where she worked, as reported by 6ABC.

Yet as police arrived the Studio 7 Lounge around 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, she was still alive, suffering from that gunshot to the head that seemed to come out of the blue as she worked the bar.

Police tell states Anderson was rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, but there her fight ended.

She was pronounced dead, leaving those two children of hers behind.

Police say the man who took their mom away from them is a 52-year-old patron of the bar who knew Anderson.

After he fired the shots at the bartender, the suspect dashed out of the bar and ran down Spruce Street toward nearby houses, police say.

That's where he allegedly used the same gun to shoot himself in the head - but survived, police say.

The suspect, still not named by police, was taken to a hospital and remains in critical condition.

At the scene, police found a handgun under the man's body.

But they're still trying to piece together the connection between the woman and the shooter.

"We don't know the relationship between him and the bartender, but we know they know one another," Philadelphia Police Lt. Johnny Walker told 6ABC.
