Virginia home invasion fails: "Virginia Beach Police are currently investigating a home invasion case which led to a man being shot, and a suspect in custody. He's been identified as 19 year-old Terrel Anthony Bell. According to a police spokesperson, one of the residents was returning home this morning, and as he was entering his residence, a [black] man armed with a shotgun came up from behind and forced him inside. The suspect then tried to take control of everyone in the residence, but the men inside the home fought back and tried to take the shotgun from the would-be robber. Police said that during the struggle, a shot was fired, hitting the leg of one of the residents. The man who was shot has been identified as 29 year-old Darryl Chrismore. The remainder of the residents wrestled the man to the floor and called police. Chrismore was taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery. He's expected to be okay.
