Virginia Beach, Va. – A Virginia Beach man is in jail after he allegedly shot into a home and was then wounded when someone inside returned fire.

The occupant of the home grabbed a handgun and returned fire, wounding Elliot.

Elliot has been charged with Aggravated Malicious Wounding and Discharging a Firearm into an Occupied Dwelling. He is currently being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.
