An undocumented Guatemalan woman remains in the hospital in McAllen after being shot in her home when masked men mistakenly raided the home thinking it was a drug stash house, Julio Olivo has the story.

On Wednesday evening Hidalgo county deputies responded to shot fired at a home on Adam Lee street and found Adelina Gomez lying on the ground in front of the home and her brother telling deputies that someone had shot his sister. The brother admitted to police that he and his sister had entered the country illegal and were inside the home watching TV. Five masked men raided the home and then realized it was the wrong home and opened fire striking Gomez and left.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Treviño says there are leads into the individuals involved in the crime and expects some arrest very soon. Gomez was taken to McAllen Medical Center and underwent surgery for her wound and is reported in critical condition.
