CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - One woman has been arrested and an investigation is ongoing after a northern Virginia homeowner reported fatally shooting an intruder.

The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to a report of a shooting Thursday evening and found 21-year-old Delonte Jones of Prince George’s County, Maryland, dead near the home.

According to the Culpeper Star-Exponent (https://bit.ly/2fUzlkl ), the 44-year-old homeowner said he answered a knock at his door and spoke with a woman who asked to come in. The man says Jones then pushed his way inside and assaulted him. The homeowner says Jones was shot during a struggle.

The newspaper reports an 18-year-old Orange, Virginia, woman is being held on charges including attempted robbery stemming from the incident.

The sheriff’s office is also looking for two other individuals who reportedly fled the scene.
