THE search for a suspected gunman who shot and killed a mother in her car while her 11-year-old son sat in the backseat continues, Pennsylvania authorities revealed.

Stonix News reports that Rachel King, 35, was in a Dunking drive-thru line in Cheltenham Township, outside of Philadelphia, on Tuesday morning, when she was shot dead.

According to Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, the gunman walked up to the driver’s side of King’s car and fired multiple shots through her window.

King’s son, who was in the backseat at the time of the possible assassination, wasn’t hurt.

“This appears to be a targeted murder.

“The gunman did not attempt to open the victim’s vehicle door, nor did he appear to communicate with her prior to shooting her numerous times through her driver’s side window,” Montgomery County District Attorney, Kevin Steele, said in a statement.

Prior to her assassination, King worked as a seventh and eighth grade English teacher at Grover Cleveland Elementary in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, authorities have released photo of the suspected vehicle involved in the shooting.
