HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Hampton police are investigating a home invasion that resulted in a double shooting Saturday evening in the 100 block of Burns Street.
Dispatchers say the call came in at 7:44 p.m. Saturday.
Initial reports say that three suspects knocked on the door of the residence, and when the occupants opened the door, the suspects entered the home and demanded money.
Police say shots were fired during the incident, which struck an adult male and female living inside the residence.
Sergeant R.C. Williams with Hampton Police said the man was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Reports say the woman sustained minor injuries following the shooting.
Williams said a third person was injured on the scene but not as a result of the shooting.
10 On Your Side spoke with a family member of the male victim.
“Well when I look down there, it is saddening and I’m trying to keep my composure on it all, but I just don’t understand,” she said.
She did not want to disclose her name or his name, but says he brings light to the family.
“I was really shocked. I was really shocked, especially this being the holidays and he just had a big gathering at his house for Thanksgiving as he always does. I’m hoping and praying that he comes out OK. I know they say life-threatening injuries, but I’m hoping that whatever it is he makes it through it,” the family member said.
The investigation remains ongoing.
