Regular violence and shootings aren't uncommon in Hampton Roads, but this home invasion by armed intruders seems a bit extreme. Not surprisingly, this being the 757, they were repulsed by armed force.

"Four people entered a home on Long Point Boulevard armed and masked and intent on robbing their victims, police said.

But the intruders were greeted with resistance. One person in the home pulled a gun and fired, hitting an intruder, according to police. Others grabbed a second masked man and held him. Two intruders escaped. The residents were unharmed.

When police arrived about 11 p.m. Wednesday at the home in the 3900 block of Long Point Blvd., they found a 29-year-old man shot in the back. He was taken to a hospital and was in critical condition, but he is expected to recover. Charges against him are pending, police said.

A second suspect, a 26-year-old, was charged with robbery, use of a firearm in a felony, breaking and entering, and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Police have not identified the two men. They are continuing the search for the two who escaped."
