At about 11 a.m., Erie Police told Oakwood Police that Johnson had broken into the home in the 300 block of Crescent Drive. He had put Shakir in the basement of the home and was scuffling with one of the two home’s owners, according to Erie Police.

We are being told that Johnson was shot in the shoulder, back and leg. Johnson is reported in stable condition after running down a ravine towards the Erie Yacht Club on the nearby Ohio River.

Oakwood Police say that Shakir is in stable condition after sustaining more injuries. Police did not confirm if she received the injuries from Johnson before the break-in.
