An Accomack County woman Friday morning drew a gun on an armed intruder at her Mason Road home and fired two shots at him after the man first shot at her.

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

“Upon the arrival of deputies, it was determined that two suspects dressed in dark clothing were involved in this incident and that they had forced entry into the residence,” Accomack County Sheriff Todd Godwin said in a prepared release.

“The homeowner confronted one of the suspects inside the residence and both suspects then fled on foot into a nearby wooded area.”
