Beverly Hills, CA - Beverly Hills police continue their hunt for three intruders who shot an Orthodox Jewish woman last night after invading and robbing her home.

Both Samuel and Diana Hirt, who live at 420 Doheny Road in Beverly Hills, were home last night when the incident occurred at approximately 8:30 PM.

Sources told VIN News that the Hirts host a minyan in their home and, reportedly, someone knocked on their door shortly after davening ended.  The couple opened the door and three masked men barged into the their home.  Police said that at least one of the men was holding a handgun.

Both Hirts were tied up by the intruders who also shot Mrs. Hirt in the leg.  The robbers reportedly dragged the husband and wife throughout the house in their search for valuables.  The burglars departed through the front door, fleeing the crime scene in a vehicle which drove away eastbound on Doheny Road.


Samuel Hirt untied himself after the intruders left and called police.  According to CBS News, both victims were taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital, where Mrs. Hirt was treated for her injury, which was deemed to be non-life threatening.  Mr. Hirt was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was discharged today.

The Santa Monica Police Department conducted a search of the area with the Los Angeles Police Department, but so far, no suspects have been located.

Police did not say what items were taken from the home.
