YORK COUNTY — Deputies and Investigators from York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office (YPSO) responded to the 300 Block of Corvette Drive on July 25 for a call regarding a breaking and entering and a person who had been shot.
When deputies arrived at the scene yesterday, at approximately 5:02 p.m., police said they found an adult male who had been shot by the homeowner.
“The subject had jumped a gate and tried to forcibly enter the home,” YPSO said. “The homeowner and his family had been outside on their deck when the subject approached. The family retreated from the deck into their house and locked the door. The subject then started kicking the door to forcibly enter the residence.”
This is an ongoing investigation. YPSO has identified the deceased, however, it is withholding the name as it has not yet been able to notify the next of kin.
YPSO is asking anyone in the area who may have seen suspicious activity around 4:30-5 p.m. to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or its tip line at 757-890-4999.
