The Free Press WV

A elderly man died Tuesday during a deadly home invasion at his Big Bend residence.

According to the West Virginia State Police, Eugene Stevens attempted to defend himself against a group of people entering his home on Cain Road.

One of the intruders was hit by gunfire, suffering wounds in the abdomen and back of the head.

The wounded person, Travis Boggs, of Stinson, was dropped off at Minnie Hamilton Health System in Grantsville. Troopers said they are able to connect Boggs’ wounds to Stevens’ death.

Authorities found an older Ford Explorer in southern Calhoun County connected to the home invasion, noting it was burned.
