PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Authorities have identified an elderly woman who was shot and killed in her south Philadelphia store on the morning of Christmas Eve.

Police said 81-year-old Marie Buck, the owner of Marie’s Grocery store, was gunned down shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday inside the store.

Police said a man dressed all in black and wearing a hood shot her multiple times. No arrests have been reported.

Family members said Marie Buck ran the market for 43 years. Relatives and officials said she seemed to take a personal interest in her customers, including helping those in need.

District Attorney Seth Williams sent a message by twitter that his thoughts and prayers were with those affected by what he called the “horrific shooting and murder.”
