Intruder fires at woman; she fires 2 shots back

An Accomack County woman surprised an intruder who had broken into her Mason Road home Friday morning by drawing a gun on him and firing off two shots after the armed suspect fired at her first.

The man and an accomplice fled the scene, prompting a large manhunt that included a Marine Police airplane and a Maryland State Police helicopter.

The search continued for hours. The two men, described as armed and wearing black clothing, remained at large Friday afternoon.

The broad-daylight home invasion and ensuing search was chronicled on police scanners as rapt residents listened.

The victim, whose name is being withheld by the News, recounted in a Friday interview several harrowing minutes in which she thought a daylight banging at the door was a delivery driver.

But then she saw a man kneeling — apparently a lookout — near a woods as an intruder broke through a door. The woman had armed herself and had words with the intruder.
