Surry man shoots home intruder
Saturday, February 4, 2006


A homeowner shot and injured a man who broke into his house this morning, the Surry County Sheriff's Office said.

Greg and Ashley Durham of 2769 Old Highway 52 woke up about 3:30 when they heard their dog barking outside, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

They saw a person wearing what looked like a hood walking near the back of their house, and called 911.

The man forced open a locked door and came in the front of the house.

Greg Durham "shot the disguised unknown person after the entry into the living quarters of the house, using a .22-caliber rifle," the statement said.

Deputies arrived and found Jason Garrett Chilton, 20, lying on the floor in the front room with a gunshot wound. He was wearing a pillowcase over his face, the statement said.

Chilton, whose address was not available, was in stable condition at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. Deputies drew a warrant charging him with first-degree burglary.
