Sacramento Police say a woman was shot in the knee during a home invasion Sunday evening along Crandall Avenue.

Around 8:30 p.m., a person came to the house with the intent of buying marijuana. A few seconds later, police say three men rushed into the home, demanding drugs and other items.

One of the men reportedly had a sawed-off shotgun and the other two had handguns, police said.

Investigators say one of the suspects tried to take a woman’s purse, she struggled with the suspect, and one of the suspects’ guns went off. The woman was shot in the knee.

All three ran south on Crandall Avenue after the shooting, according to officers.

The woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to be ok.
