Man Reportedly Shot By Grandfather While Breaking Into Home

A man who allegedly broke into his grandfather’s home in Long View was shot multiple times. According to published reports, authorities believe the 34-year-old man kicked in a door, demanded money and assaulted the victim at a home on 38th Street NW Thursday morning (April 15).

Long View Police found the man at a nearby hotel with life threatening injuries after the resident shot him multiple times. According to reports, the shooter did not know it was his grandson breaking in and assaulting him due to the fact that the assailant was wearing a mask. The wounded man was flown to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte and was last reported to be in critical condition. The investigation is continuing.
