Chillicothe Police say they are trying to find a man who shot a woman in a home invasion, Friday. Authorities say the white male subject was armed with a gun when he busted into a home at 416 Church Street at around 11am.
A woman and a 3-year-old child were reportedly in the home at the time. Police say the suspect started to rob the victim, a struggle for the weapon ensued, he shot her, and fled.
The woman was flown to a Columbus hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to her shoulder, said police. She is currently listed in stable condition at OSU Hospital.
Authorities say the man was unknown to the victim, has scruffy hair and facial hair, appears to be in his 30s, 5'7" tall, 150-160 lbs, and is believed to be wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans. Police say he is to be considered armed and dangerous, so you need to call 911 immediately if you see him.
Nearby Chillicothe High and Worthington Elementary schools were placed in lock down.
