Police: Elderly woman shoots break-in suspect in Ohio

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say a suspect is in “grave” condition after he was shot by an elderly woman while apparently trying to break into her southwest Ohio home.

Police officials say the woman had been alone Monday evening in her Dayton home when she shot someone who she believed had been trying to break into her home.

First responders found a male on the porch and rushed him to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police say the suspect’s injuries are so severe that it’s unclear if he’s an adult or a juvenile. He will have to be identified through other means.

Detectives will question the woman and determine whether to pursue charges.

Police are looking for two other suspects. Both are believed to be juveniles.
