A Pitt County woman was shot twice early Thursday morning before thieves ransacked her home.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office says they got a call about the shooting just after 2am.
34 year old Rebecca Reichenberg told authorities 3 masked men burst into her home demanding money on Watkins Way near Farmville.
She said they asked her where her husband was and then shot her twice, once in the left buttocks and again in the left upper thigh. Authorities say the men then allegedly started tearing her house up, going through each room looking for money but they didn’t actually steal anything.
Reichenberg was transported to Pitt County Memorial Hospital.
