CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- A man shot outside a home in Chesapeake has died.

Police received a call around 6:40 p.m. Tuesday for a shooting on the 500 block of Wingfield Avenue. Based on a preliminary investigation, police say 39-year-old Shawn Basnight and another adult were inside their home when three suspects forced their way inside and stole several items.

The victim followed the suspects to their vehicle and attempted to retrieve some of the stolen items. That's when one of the suspects pulled out a gun and shot the victim several times.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

Police have arrested one of the three suspects.  19-year-old Micah Ramirez of Newport News was charged with burglary, robbery, abduction, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
