WAYNESBORO, VA. (WHSV) -- The Waynesboro Police Department is investigating a home invasion and robbery.
At about 1:40 a.m. Friday morning, officers responded to an apartment at Fairfax Hall on Reservoir Street in Waynesboro.
Police said witnesses reported several masked men entering the building with weapons.
When officers arrived, they spoke with three victims, a 60-year-old man, a 41-year-old man, both from Waynesboro, and a 38-year-old Richmond man.
Police said two shots were fired in the process, but neither shot injured any of the three victims.
Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department said, "there's nothing more frightening for some folks then being at home and having armed masked intruders storm inside your home, and that's exactly what happened last night at Fairfax Hall."
Edwards said this is a random incident and believes the victims were targeted.
Victims gave police vague descriptions of the suspects. Both suspects are black men; the first suspect is tall with a slender build and light skin. The second man has a stocky build and darker skin.
Police have no description of the third suspect.
Edwards said a friend of the victims opened the door for the suspects and, "when they came in, they forced the three occupants on the floor and then started robbing them."
Fairfax Hall management declined to talk on camera, but released this statement, "after becoming aware of the Fairfax Hall residents' concern, South River Development Corporation has installed security surveillance equipment at each entrance door and lobby. Management, maintenance and/or security is on site at least 12 hours per day; and staff is pursuing all available legal remedies including options afforded by the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act."
Edwards said the estimated value of the cash and valuables stolen equals $550.
"Even if they had made off with one dollar, the fact that they came in with guns and fired shots, they have made this a very serious crime," said Edwards.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Waynesboro Police Department or Central Shenandoah Crime Stoppers.
