Mum shot man who flew round world 'to attack daughter'

The brick smashed through the door to the home ending up on the floor of the kitchen

Agnew said Skinner will be charged with breaking and entering with a deadly weapon with the intent to commit a serious crime as he came carrying a knife, duct tape and pepper spray.

The FBI was also helping with the investigation. When the mother called her husband, he told her to grab a gun.

New Zealand man Troy Skinner traveled more than 8,000 miles in an attempt to meet with the child he had been talking to online.

A spokeswoman for the hospital told the Herald she had "no information to give about that patient at this time".

Singh said Skinner hadn't been in trouble with the law before. However, Skinner persisted and tried another method of communication, but "she did not cooperate with him".

Agnew said after he arrived at the scene he went next door and found the mother and two daughters "visibly upset".

And when Skinner then threw a stone through a glass door at the property, the woman fired at Skinner twice, hitting him once in the neck.

"She was protecting her family", Agnew said.

Skinner had flown from Auckland to Los Angeles before travelling to Virginia where he allegedly claimed he was a hitchhiker who needed help.

He is now fighting for his life after being shot in the neck by the girl's mother.

New Zealand Police said in a statement it is aware of the incident and will assist U.S. authorities when necessary.

"He is not the victim, that lady and her family members are the victims", Sheriff Agnew said.

Agnew said Skinner was repeatedly warned by the homeowner that she had a gun but that didn't stop him.

They also said they had been in contact with Skinner's family and had offered consular assistance. Agnew said, "He was not invited here, he was not expected here, he had been told in the past that the daughter no longer wished to communicate with him".

Agnew did not speculate about what he believed Skinner would have done had he gotten inside, as the Associated Press reported.

Skinner first made contact with the Goochland girl three to four months earlier via Discord, a voice-over-internet app that allows video-gamers to communicate via their personal device.

Skinner entered the USA last Wednesday at Los Angeles International Airport. "They had a very violent man trying to get into their home".

After flying from Auckland, New Zealand to Sydney, Australia, Skinner jumped on another plane to Los Angeles, and flew from there to Washington D.C. before getting a bus through to Richmond, Virginia.

"They thought that was the end of it until they saw him at the back basement door, which is situated under the deck".

The Goochland County Sherriff's Office said they received two separate calls on the afternoon of June 22-one about a shooting and a second from a man reporting his wife had called him about a man dressed in black attempting to break into their home.
