Police Continue to Investigate Shelby Drive Shooting

Posted: Updated:

There is still no new information from police Wednesday night about Tuesday's early morning home invasion in Charlottesville. Those missing pieces have some neighbors on edge. 

Right now police aren't saying where the 24-year-old shooting victim was hit, whether or not the suspects knew him, or what was taken from the home during the robbery. All that is confirmed is two men pushed their way into a house on Shelby Drive, robbed the place and shot a man inside. 

Neighbors say the lack of information from police is discouraging, and that the silence has them feeling unsafe. 

"At least let us know something instead of keeping us in the dark because we know they know stuff and it's really unsettling," said Judy Dunivan, who lives on Shelby Drive. 

Other neighbors who did not want to be identified echo those concerns. Many of them say they won't feel safe until they know whether or not this was a random act. 

The victim is expected to make a full recovery and loved ones say he is doing fine.  

Police say they are still investigating and need time to review information and evidence. They fear releasing any information may jeopardize the case.
