INDIANANPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 8, 2014) — A woman was shot in an attempted home invasion on the east side early Saturday morning.

People in the home in the 800 block of Gladstone Avenue say two masked men tried to get in through the front door around 2 a.m.

Someone answered a knock at the door and the two men were there and began trying to force their way inside. That’s when all three people fought to get the door closed. Before they managed to get the door shut, the men fired shots into the home. And once the door was shut, they fired several more shots through the door and wall.

A 23-year-old woman who had been asleep on the couch through the commotion, was shot in the stomach.

She was awake and breathing when medics arrived and rushed her to Eskenazi Hospital, but there is no word on an updated condition.

Police are still investigating the attempted break-in and shooting and have not released any suspect descriptions.
