OAK HILL, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was shot and killed during an early morning home invasion in the Oak Hill area.

News outlets report the Fayette County Sherriff deputies said in a statement that two men wearing ski masks forced their way into the home Sunday. One of the men shot the 48-year-old woman in the chest with a handgun. Both men fled the scene on foot.

Police say two other people in the house were unharmed.

Sheriff Mike Fridley says the suspects made no apparent attempt to search for anything to take. He says they forced entry into the home, shot the victim and fled without saying anything.
