The man, dressed in workout tights and a black hoodie, had dropped her off at the hospital but when police arrived he’d fled the area on foot, with his white Mercedes Benz sedan found abandoned nearby.
Police later pulled up at a home on Simmat Avenue at Condell Park where bullet holes and casings were found, and a crime scene was set up.
