BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA.com) — A woman in her late 70s was shot during a home invasion robbery Friday night in Beverly Hills.
Three armed masked suspects knocked on the door of a residence in the 400 block of Doheny Road in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood, forced their way in and tied up an elderly couple, according to Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino.
The woman was shot in the leg at some point during the crime.
