LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - The victim of a Louisa shooting was discharged from the hospital Thursday night. He spoke to NBC12 just hours after he says he was ambushed by what appeared to be a family with car trouble.
George Hunley was shocked to find his Carson's Corner property swarming with deputies searching for evidence late Thursday night. Hunley was not allowed to enter his home as deputies executed a search warrant.
"I just came from the hospital with two holes in my leg," said Hunley. "And I'm locked out of my house. I don't know what they are looking for. I've been a minister for 32 years. It's not like I'm getting into mischief and that kind of thing."
Deputies took Hunley inside their mobile crime lab for blood samples.
"It's a travesty of justice," said Hunley. "If I had not fought him, he would have taken me up in the woods and killed me. They should be out looking for the criminals that did this to me rather than treating me like the criminal."
Hunley claims he was driving on Chalk Level Road around 1:30 p.m. when he saw a man, woman and one-year-old on the side of the road. When Hunley pulled over to see if they needed help, Hunley says the man pulled out a gun and demanded money. Hunley says he struggled with the man and was shot twice before he managed to drive to his Carson's Corner home and call police.
Police are now looking for the black male, white female wearing a stocking cap, and their child. They may be driving an early 1990s model blue Ford Taurus.
"I can't really say that there is an immediate threat to the community or anything like that, because I suspect that vehicle is probably in another county by now," said Major Donald Lowe. "Be aware of your surroundings."
Meanwhile, deputies questioned Hunley's version of events. Hunley says deputies wanted to know if gunfire was actually exchanged at his home. Hunley refused to take a polygraph test.
"I'm on painkillers," said Hunley. "I've been in shock. I've been shot twice. I had to wrestle for my life. There is no way in this world I'm going to take a polygraph test. They are too inconclusive."
