after opening fire inside of his home off of Route 460 in the Blue Ridge Community.
41-year-old Perry Kim Maybry's wife was able to escape unharmed after the shooting started this evening.
No one else was in the home.
When Bedford County and State Police arrived on the scene, Maybry was reportedly still firing - using a shotgun and a 22-caliber rifle.
Bedford County Sargeant Steve Brooks was able to talk the man into coming out of the house un-armed.
Maybry is charged with using a firearm in commission of a felony, and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
Authorities describe him as - quote - "very intoxicated" at the time of the incident.

by burning it.
But they didn't call firefighters first.
They called them after the flames grew out of control.

The abandoned house burned down to its foundation - firefighters were able to quelch the blaze before it affected any other structure.
Charges are pending following an investigation Monday.

Lower income Virginians are not benefiting from a booming economy in the state.
A study from the Center for Housing Research at Virginia Tech finds that poor residents from all around the state are paying a higher percentage of their income, just to cover rent.
Poor Virginians are spending half their income on rent - that's several percentage points worse than in the late 1980's.
The Center's director says options for affordable housing are on the decline, and that wages in low-end jobs have become stagnant.
