65-Year Old Woman Shot During Home Invasion
A 65-year-old woman is hospitalized in critical condition Sunday morning after being shot in the back during a home invasion.
Three black males dressed in black, wearing masks, somehow managed to break through the woman’s back gate, walk through her backyard and get onto the roof, where they entered the home.
The intruders shot the woman after she tried to ward them off. Her husband returned gunfire. The woman, then, walked down the stairs with the bullet in her shoulder, and collapsed.
This happened just before 1 a.m. on the 2500 block of A Street in Kensington.
The victim’s son and son’s girlfriend were sleeping on the first floor of the house.
Telephone wires were cut about a week ago off the back of the house. Police are investigating whether it was the suspects who had done this also.
