Authorities were searching Monday for the person who shot and killed a Pottstown woman during an apparent home invasion-robbery.
Sylvia Williams, 38, was found dead Sunday evening in the second-floor bedroom of her home on the 300 block of North Washington Street, police said. Her body was discovered when police responded to the report of a security alarm going off, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said Monday.
An initial investigation indicated that Williams suffered a gunshot wound, but few other details were immediately released. An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
