1 suspect dead, another injured after home invasion at Henrico apartment complex

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Henrico police identified one of the home invasion suspects who died Sunday due to his injuries.

Officers have identified the person as 19-year-old Taivon Maquell Fox, a recent Glen Allen High School grad. He died at Henrico Doctor's Hospital.

Police say apartment tenants shot Fox and another home invasion suspect early Saturday.

Crews arrived at the Three Chopt West apartment complex, located in the 8800 block of Three Chopt Road, around 2 a.m. Saturday.

When they arrived, they found a black man lying in the grassy area suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. They also found a walkie-talkie and a flashlight next to him.

Crews say they also found another guy about 50 yards away, who also suffered from gunshot wounds. Lying next to him was a black ski mask.

Police say Fox and the other masked man previously knocked on the door of a home and told the man living there that someone scratched his car. He left his apartment and went to go check on his car, according to Henrico police.

The two men walked inside and confronted a woman, who also lives in the apartment. Police say they were not sure what their demands were, but the woman ended up in a physical confrontation with them.

Officers say the man came back inside after realizing there was no damage done to his car. The man tried to get the two suspects to leave, but police say they did not listen to his commands.

According to police, the man still felt threatened, so he found his weapon and began shooting at them. The woman also found her weapon and followed suit, officers say.

The two suspects left the residence and collapsed in the parking lot, about 50 yards apart. The men were taken to Henrico Doctor's Hospital. Police say the other suspect is still fighting for his life.

The man and woman were not injured in the home invasion.

Officers say it is unclear whether if the suspects had any weapons on them other than a baseball bat.
