The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate a morning home invasion in which the victim shot at the alleged suspects.

The armed robbery of the victim occurred on Highway 158 just outside Roanoke Rapids, Detective B.C. Griffin said this afternoon.
The sheriff’s office received the call around 8 a.m. and learned three people came in the house and robbed the victim at gunpoint. Griffin declined comment on what was taken during the robbery.
The victim did fire shots but Griffin declined to say whether the shots were fired from inside or outside the residence.
He did say the three suspects fled and it was not immediately clear whether any of them were injured.
The victim was injured as a result of the home invasion but not from gunfire.
Investigators continue to follow up on leads and speaking with persons of interest, Griffin said.
