A kosher bakery owner in Philadelphia was shot in the face yesterday during an attempted robbery, the Times of Israel website reports today (August 8, 2015).
Ziza Djordevic, 56, was taking a cigarette break outside the Best Cake Kosher Bakery early yesterday morning when two people approached and shot her. The assailants fled the scene with Djordevic's apron, which is where she keeps her money.
The bakery sits on a strip with numerous other Jewish establishments on the northwestern outskirts of Philadelphia.
After the victim called 911, she was rushed to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in critical condition. The bullet -- which had passed through her windpipe -- was lodged in her spine. Police are searching for the assailants.
