SAN DIEGO – A 24-year-old woman was hospitalized Thursday after being attacked in her apartment by a group of people including a former roommate and then shot in the neck, police said.

Officers responded about 9:30 p.m. to the apartment in the 5300 block of Napa Street in San Diego’s Morena neighborhood, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.
