Suspect Fatally Shot In Accomack Co. Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

ACCOMACK Co., Va. - Investigators have questioned the owner of the Sanford, Va. home where an overnight shooting took place.

It happened on the 9000 block of Marsh Market Road, where Accomack Co. sheriff Todd Godwin tells WMDT that police received a call at 9:49 PM for a home invasion and shooting.

One suspect was reportedly shot and killed by the homeowner. A female suspect was wounded Another female suspect remains in the hospital recovering from wounds sustained during the alleged attempted robbery.

Two more suspects are still at-large.

Accomack Co. sheriff deputies, with a K-9 unit have been searching the grounds, tapping off both sides of the house since last night, according to Godwin.

Don Porter, a neighbor, says he knows the homeowner, Tyler Williams.

"I've known them all their life," said Porter. "The kids were fine as far as I'm concerned. [The shooting is a] tragic situation."

Porter says his wife woke him up after 10 PM Wednesday night to police sirens and flashing lights. The scene is something he says never happens in this quiet neighborhood. It's usually secure enough to leave his doors unlocked, says Porter.

But he admits, "after last night, the doors will be locked. It was a shocker."

According to Godwin, Williams was released and any possible charges against him would come from the Commonwealth's Attorney Gary Agar.

Agar said via phone that he will not be making any comments during the on-going investigation.

At this time, Godwin would not release any of the suspects names.
