A woman died after she was shot in the stomach during a home invasion on Tucson’s eastside Tuesday morning.
Frida Beezley, 87, was pronounced dead at a hospital hours after she was shot at a home in the 2900 block of South Marvin Avenue, near South Kolb and East Golf Links roads, said Sgt. Matt Ronstadt, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.
The woman’s son was shot in the arm during the home invasion, Ronstadt said.
The son called 911 about 11 a.m. to report that he and his mother had been shot by two men, he said.
The man said he heard his dogs barking in the back yard of the home, and when he opened to door two men forced their way inside.
The man told police the intruders were armed and used masks or bandanas to cover their face.
The man grabbed his own gun, and he and the intruders exchanged gunfire.
It is not known if the suspects were shot. They were gone by the time officers arrived.
The son was taken to a different hospital for treatment of his injuries.
