Woman shot in home invasion

Woman shot in home invasion

A woman is shot inside her home in Northwest Huntsville.

Huntsville have charged 1 suspect and they are searching for another in a Wednesday afternoon home invasion that occurred about 1:30.

Ray Taylor's neighborhood on Thistle Lane in Northwest Huntsville interrupted by gunfire.

"2 loud gunshots when I came out on the porch I didn't see or hear anything a few minutes later 911 and police showed up," says Taylor.

Across the street, a woman, reportedly, shot 3 times.

Taylor heard the blast.

"Loud, loud. It was loud. Real loud," says Taylor.

Police spokesman Wendell Johnson said Claude Ford was inside his home at 6413 Thistle Lane when two men broke into his home to rob him.

As the two suspects were leaving the house, Betty Smith Lanier was entering the house and they attempted to rob her. As she ran from the house, one of the men shot her multiple times.

Standing on his front porch, Taylor has no idea who opened fire or why it happened at this house.

"They quiet. They work. Real quiet work. All I know,' says Taylor.

As police arrived, they spotted 21-year-old Jeremiah Eugene Humphrey and arrested him.

After questioning Humphrey, they charged him with attempted murder, burglary and robbery.

He will be booked into the Madison County metro Jail.

Meanwhile Johnson said Laniers injuries are not life threatening.

A second unknown suspect is still at large.

Taylor says he's surprised something like this happened.

"I hate to say it. Don't think it will happen in your neighborhood these days happens everywhere,' says Taylor.
