    Homeowner fights back

    VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police say they've made an arrest in a Friday morning home invasion in which the homeowner fought back against four men who broke into his home.

    MPO Adam Bernstein says officers responded to a burglary call on O’Hare Drive around 10:45 a.m. Within minutes, there was a call about a shooting on Lindberg Place.

    Bernstein says four people broke through the front door of the home on O'Hare Drive and got into a fight with the homeowner. One suspect fired at him, but he wasn't hit.

    According to Bernstein, the homeowner got a gun from one of the suspects and fired back. The four ran from the home.

    As police arrived in the area, they found a man who'd been shot on the ground, about 120 yards from the home; he was taken to the hospital for treatment. As of Monday, he remained hospitalized and is considered a "person of interest" in the home invasion.

    A second man believed to be involved was taken in for questioning around 2:15 p.m. from the Chimney Hill area. Police on Monday confirmed he's been arrested. Deonte Unique Farrow, 18, of the 4000 Barkleaf Dr., is charged with armed burglary, use of a firearm and conspiracy.

    A 17-year-old has outstanding petitions on the same charges; police are still trying to identify the fourth suspect.

    Many residents in the neighborhood were home at the time and they're talking with police about what they saw and heard.

    One woman told 13News she heard several shots and then saw two young men running through her neighbor's yard.

    Va. Beach air units, K-9 and numerous officers are patrolled the area in the hours after the crime.

    The homeowner was treated for a cut on his arm and returned home mid-afternoon.

    The lockdown began at 11:00 a.m. at Parkway Elementary and was lifted at 1:20 p.m. and the lockdown at White Oaks went into effect around 12:15 p.m. and was lifted around 1:10 p.m., said Va. Beach Schools spokeswoman Nancy Soscia.

    O’Hare Drive was closed into the afternoon as the investigation continued.

    Anyone with information on the suspects in the home invasion should call Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.

    Im sure they would have thought O da**it if he confronted them with a weapon, but when he took one of their weapons and used it against them, im certain they thought oh S**T...

    good for him, too bad he didnt blast all of them away though

    What a bunch of chuckleheads...

    Four against one, they lose their gun, get shot, get caught and a slew of charges.

    I gotta wonder how it would have turned out if the home owner had his own gun and didn't have to disarm one of them?

    It just goes to show that one unarmed man with a "can do" attitude against four armed intruders isn't necessarily going to remain "unarmed" in the end, or the loser!

    Outstanding!

    Crooks are not crooks because they're smart, that is for certian.

    Atta boy to the home owner. Four against one, add a little righteous anger on the homeowner's part and look what you get.

    Those criminals are very lucky. Maybe they should try another line of work.
