SACRAMENTO, CA - A woman was shot during a robbery in midtown Sacramento Friday night.
The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. outside of a home on the 800 block of 27th Street, near I Street, during a party, Sacramento police Officer Michele Gigante said.
The 33-year-old woman stepped onto the porch from the party to have a cigarette on the stairs. The suspect then walked up to the woman and tried to steal her purse; when the woman pulled back, the suspect shot her and fled the scene.
Gigante said the woman was shot in the upper body and transported to a hospital for treatment; her condition was unclear.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his early 20s, 5'9" weighing 180 pounds with a mustache and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a red long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans.
