It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News Week In Review.

Monday, gunfire erupted in Easton for the third time in two days.

A woman was struck in an apparent drive-by shooting in the 1200 block of Washington Street.

She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Earlier in the day, shots were fired at a nearby location, but no one was hurt.

And just the day before, a stray bullet narrowly missed a woman inside her home.

On Tuesday, a tractor trailer driver was arrested in South Heidelberg Township, Berks County after authorities said he caused a crash with a freight train.

Police charged Christian Gomez of New Jersey with causing a catastrophe and other offenses.

The crash sent the passenger of the tractor trailer to the hospital.

Wednesday, a toddler was killed after being hit by a car in Washington Township, Lehigh County.

Officials said the 21-month-old girl was hit just yards from her front door in the 4200 block of Mountain Road.

No charges have been filed in connection with the crash.

Thursday, a FedEx hub came one step closer to coming to Northampton County.

The Allen Township Board of Supervisors gave the project the green light, with some conditions.

The $335 million facility would initially be 800,000 square feet and could grow to more than a million.

A FedEx representative said they would like to start building within the next six months, with a final completion goal of late 2016 into 2017.

Friday, a Berks County man was nabbed after allegedly leading police on a wild chase in Hanover Township, Northampton County.

Police said 23-year-old Aaron Ibrahem sped off after an officer asked him to get out of his car.

Officials said he sped through residential and business areas before the car crashed and burst into flames.
