Tulsa Police have identified the woman shot by officers in a home invasion case Wednesday morning.

Police say she is Shelia Ann Wright, 54.

Police say the incident began with a person reporting a home invasion near 500 east 47th Street North at about 7:15 a.m. The victim told police a woman kicked the door in, then left.

The victim gave police a detailed description of the woman's Chevy Avalanche and police found it at a home near 37th Street North and Peoria.
