Woman, 90, facing eviction, shoots herself | Wake Up From Your Slumber
A 90-year-old Akron woman, about to be evicted from her La Croix Avenue home for failing to pay her mortgage, apparently shot herself Wednesday while Summit County sheriff's deputies were knocking on her door.

A neighbor and the deputies found Addie Polk in an upstairs bedroom suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body. A handgun was found near her.

She was taken to Akron General Medical Center, police said, and is expected to recover.

Akron police are investigating the incident.
