OAKLAND  (AP) — An 81-year-old Oakland 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.
