Tuesday, October 4, 2011
CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman has been shot in an attempted carjacking by a man matching the description of a gunman who killed two people and wounded six others at a Northern California limestone quarry.
Santa Clara County Sheriff's spokesman Jose Cardoza says the woman was shot Wednesday morning at a Cupertino intersection by the suspect, who then fled on foot.
Cardoza says the suspect used a weapon similar to the gun used in the quarry shooting earlier Wednesday morning.
The victim was taken to the hospital. Her condition was unknown.
Authorities say the suspect, 45-year-old Shareef Allman, is still on the loose and is considered armed and dangerous.
