Authorities eventually were able to get in touch with a 28-year-old woman who lives at the apartment, and she said she fled during a home invasion. She ran as soon as the intruders entered.

A preliminary police report said two unknown suspects broke into the victims apartment looking for someone who was not there. An argument and struggle ensued and shots were fired, police said.
