Campbell CountyFrom the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office: We are seeking information about a home invasion that took place in the county on Oct. 1. Maj. L.T. Guthrie said that on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 2:22 a.m., Campbell County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to a location off Drummer Street in Rustburg in regards to a home invasion in which one of the residents sustained a gunshot wound to his leg. Homeowners were awakened by the sound of someone breaking into their home and seconds later were encountered by two masked suspects, one wielding a handgun. The suspects demanded money and tied up the residents of the home while searching. During the course of the invasion, the male victim was shot in the leg. The injury is not considered life threatening. The suspects fled the home with an undetermined amount of money belonging to the victims. There were as many as three masked suspects in the home. One displayed a firearm. All three suspects were believed to be black males. The armed suspect is thought to be between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall.
