Deputies shoot elderly woman pointing a shotgun
VICTORVILLE – (INT) – A 91-year-old woman was shot and fatally wounded when she pointed a shotgun at sheriff’s deputies who’d responded to a possible break-in at a Spring Valley Lake home.

A 911 caller indicated that ‘unknown subjects’ were attempting to break into the residence on Sunburst Road.

Deputies said that Betty Francois emerged at the front door Saturday carrying the firearm. When she pointed it at officers, she was ordered to drop the weapon but was shot.

The elderly woman was taken to the Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton where she died on Monday.
