Citrus Heights Police have arrested a woman for investigation of attempted murder after she allegedly shot an acquaintance multiple times.

Kathleen French, 47, of Citrus Heights, is alleged to have shot the man inside a home on the 7300 block of Single Way around 8 p.m. Friday night. French knew the victim, whose name has not been released, but authorities are unsure of a motive for the shooting, according to a police statement.

The man's injuries are serious, but not life threatening, police said. He was taken to Mercy San Juan Hospital.

French is being held in the Sacramento Jail. She has also been charged with discharging a firearm in a negligent manner and battery against a person with bodily injury, both felonies.
