Ross, who police said was at the home, was shot when the suspect fired the gun.

Police said three suspects fled the scene and a man, who lived in the home, took Ross to the ER before fleeing.

Additional search warrants and interviews were conducted that led officers to a home in the 700 block of McDowell Avenue, NW in Roanoke where two suspects were taken into custody on Tuesday, May 22 without incident.

Police identified those two suspects as Aaron Witcher, 27, of Roanoke and a 17-year-old male, also of Roanoke.
