RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — Police say a woman was shot in the face and a toddler was bound with duct tape during an apparent home invasion at an eastern Indiana apartment complex.

Richmond police say the shooting was reported Tuesday night at the Robert F. Smith Apartments on the city’s north side.

Police tell the Palladium-Item that complex resident 22-year-old Christina Hampton was taken by helicopter to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment. Information about Hampton’s relationship with the child and any injuries to the toddler wasn’t immediately available.

Capt. James Branum says neighbors reported seeing two men leave the apartment after the sound of several gunshots.

No arrests were reported and officers and a police dog searched the area around the apartment.
