A woman at a home on the 1600 block of Greenview Drive was shot in the back as she tried to close the door on a man she did not know, Gastonia Police Sgt. Keith McCabe said.

The incident began with a knock at the door at 9:59 p.m. Tuesday, McCabe said. When the woman realized she did not know the man, she closed the door and three shots were fired through it, he said.

At the same time, shots were fired through the rear door of an adjacent apartment.

The 34-year-old woman was in stable condition Wednesday morning at Gaston Memorial Hospital, McCabe said.
