Woman, 67, shot in Bradenton house

MANATEE — A shooting Sunday night injured two people, according to the Manatee Sheriff's Office.

About 7:47 p.m., a man carrying a rifle stepped out of a stopped, newer-model, gold van and opened fire on a house in the 6000 block of 12th Street West, according to a news release.

A 67-year-old woman inside was struck in the leg, and a second person suffered superficial injuries, according to authorities. The woman was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg for treatment.

Before authorities arrived, the rent house's tenant, who is wanted on several arrest warrants, left the area. Responding deputies found "evidence of narcotics use inside the residence," a news release states.
