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.

Poor Virginians are spending half their income on rent - that's several percentage points worse than in the late 1980's.
