OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An 81-year-old Northern California woman was shot and wounded Tuesday by an intruder in her usually tranquil neighborhood.
Oakland police spokeswoman Johnna Watson says the victim, whose name was not released, suffered a gunshot wound at her home in the 4100 block of Laguna Avenue in Oakland. She is now in stable condition at a local hospital.
Watson says the preliminary investigation shows the suspect forced entry into the victim’s home and that this motive may have been a home invasion robbery.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s who is 6 feet tall, 175 pounds and wearing dark clothing.
