Police: Mom Shot Answering Front Door Was Likely Targeted

Authorities say a Florida mom home with her two children has been shot multiple times after answering her front door.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's officials say 37-year-old Angela Morales heard several knocks at the door shortly after midnight Saturday while home with her husband and 9-year-old twins. That's when authorities say a man opened fire, hitting Morales multiple times.

She was hospitalized in critical condition.

Authorities believe Morales was likely targeted. Two different types of weapon casings discovered leads investigators to believe there may be more than one suspect. The shooters fled in a dark colored sedan. Authorities did not release a possible motive or any other details.
