A woman has died and a man was hospitalized in critical condition following a shooting at a home in Banning, police reported Saturday.

Officers went to the home in the 700 block of east Hoffer Street shortly before 8 p.m. Friday after a telephone call from the woman’s mother, who said her daughter had been shot, Banning Police Lt. Vincent Avila said in an email.

Arriving officers found inside the home a 37-year-old woman and a 57-year-old man, both suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, Avila said.

Both were hospitalized, and the woman died from her wounds.

Avila said Saturday afternoon the victims’ names were being withheld.

“A suspect is not yet in custody, but there is a person of interest,” he wrote.
