RALSTON, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say two robbers broke into a Ralston apartment and fatally shot a woman.

Police say officers were dispatched to the Orleans Square Apartments just before 11:45 p.m. Monday. The apartments are about a block north of Ralston Middle School.

Ralston Police Chief Ron Murtaugh says 32-year-old Aimee Kearns and another person were in her apartment when the men broke in and demanded money. Murtaugh says Kearns was shot but the other person wasn't. Murtaugh wouldn't identify that person.

Police have a description of a car seen leaving the scene. No arrests have been reported.
