RAEFORD, N.C. – A suspect was shot in the face and head during a struggle over a shotgun with a home invasion victim in Raeford early Sept. 8.

The Hoke County Sheriff Office said Michael Glenn Bryant and a 13-year-old were asleep when two masked intruders entered a home at 127 Woodland Heights in Raeford.

The suspects confronted Bryant, pointed a shotgun at him and demanded money.

Bryant and one of the masked intruders began to struggle over the shotgun.

During the struggle, Bryant was able to gain control of the gun.

The shotgun went off during the struggle, striking suspect Dangelo Malik Turner, 18, of Southern Pines, in the face and head.

At this point, the suspects left the home on foot towards Army Road, the sheriff’s office said.

Bryant followed the suspects as they fled the scene.

The suspects fired at Bryant as he chased them, striking him in the hand.

Bryant was taken to Moore County Regional Hospital for treatment.

Turner was dropped off at the hospital’s front entrance later.

On Monday, Turner was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflict serious injury, first-degree robbery, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

He is being held under $100,000 unsecured bond.

The second suspect, Carmen Ordaz, 31, was already in the Moore County Detention Center on unrelated charges.

On Tuesday, Ordaz was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill/inflict serious injury, first-degree robbery, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

She is being held under a $150,000 unsecured bond.
