NORFOLK — Two men who were shot during a Norfolk home invasion on Sunday have been charged with felonies in connection to the alleged burglary.

Police believe 21-year-old Jamel Bryant and 21-year-old J-Quan Reap were armed when they allegedly entered a home to burglarize it in the 1000 block of W. 50th Street around 10:45 p.m. Two men were home at the time of the burglary, but were not injured in the shooting, according to the Norfolk Police Department.

Bryant and Reap were shot during the home invasion, although police are not releasing the circumstances that led to their injuries. Both men arrived at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where they were charged with felonies, according to the NPD.

Bryant, who is from the 1500 block of Berkley Avenue Extended, was charged with two counts of use of a gun in the commission of a felony, armed burglary and attempted malicious wounding. He is currently being held in the Norfolk City Jail without bond, according to the NPD.

Reap, of the 500 block of W. 27th Street, was charged with the same crimes. He has not been released from the hospital, but will be taken to the jail at that time.
