SMITHFIELD, Va. — Authorities say the man who broke into his ex-girlfriend's apartment in Smithfield and shot another man was involved in a shootout with police.
Police learned that 30-year-old Andrew Brock Jr. was outside his ex-girlfriend's apartment arguing with her through her door Tuesday morning at 114 Cattail Lane.
When she refused to let him inside, he kicked her apartment door down and stormed into the home.
He opened fire into the apartment and ended up shooting a man in the stomach. He took off right after.
Suffolk officers found Brock armed Wednesday night on Route 10. A confrontation ended up escalating into a shootout. He was struck by gunfire and sustained serious injuries. Medics airlifted him to a local hospital where he's in stable condition.
Brock is wanted for breaking and entering, aggravated malicious wounding, shooting within a dwelling and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
