Franklin County Sheriff Jerry Jones said Thursday that his deputies were investigating a home invasion and shooting on Shearin Court in Youngsville.

The first call about a woman shot in the head came in at 2:16 a.m.

Jones said investigators determined both entrances to the home were forced in and there were two children in the house at the time.

The children were not hurt. The woman - who was not immediately identified - was taken to an area hospital. She was shot in the face, but is expected to survive.

Jones said 18-year-old Shannon Nyamodi and a 15-year-old girl are currently in custody.

The sheriff said his investigators believe the woman was targeted because she works for a dentist's office and makes deposits for the business.
