BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a 66-year-old southwestern Michigan woman was shot when a bullet tore into her home.

Benton Harbor public safety officers say the woman was lying in bed watching on TV Saturday night when a bullet went through a wall and struck her. She was taken to a hospital, where she’s in critical condition.

Police say several people were seen running from a nearby park, where the gun likely was fired. They add she doesn’t appear to have been a target.

Investigators seek the identities of those in the area as they review footage from residential security cameras.
