NEW YORK – Police say attackers used health care reform as a ruse to approach their victims and then shot two and pistol-whipped another in a Long Island home.
Suffolk County police said Saturday that a 26-year-old woman was arrested on attempted murder and burglary charges in the attack Friday in Huntington. Two men were arrested on the same charges earlier. Information on the suspects' arraignments wasn't immediately available Saturday night.
Police say the three told the home's residents they were selling insurance, referring to President Barack Obama's push to overhaul America's health care system. Police say the suspects then forced their way in, demanded money and attacked the victims.
The victims' conditions weren't immediately available.
