MINDEN (WVVA) - One man was shot and another pistol-whipped during a home invasion in Fayette County Thursday morning.

Fayette County 911 received a report at 1:04 a.m. Thursday morning of an apparent home invasion robbery at a residence in the Minden area.

Upon arrival, police determined that at least three individuals had forced entry into the home and confronted the individuals inside.

At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun. The suspects were described as black males, all wearing masks. The suspects allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash and cell phones from the residence.

The shooting victim, identified as 21-year-old Jorail Giddings of Detroit, was transported to Charleston Area Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

The second victim, identified as 23-year-old Christopher Andrew Jackson -- also of Detroit -- was reportedly struck in the head several times with a handgun. He was treated and released at Plateau Medical Center.

The suspects remain at large.

Three minor children were also in the residence at the time of the incident. They were uninjured.

Police say the victims and a third person were visiting the residence from Detroit.

A similar incident occurred at the same residence on Jan. 18, 2012, when cash and cell phones were taken during a home invasion.  Police believe the same suspects were involved in that incident as well.

If you have any information on the incident, contact the Fayette County Sheriff's Office Detective Bureau at 304-574-4305, the Fayette 911 Center at 304-574-3590, Crimestoppers at 304-255-7867, or submit a tip at www.fayettesheriffwv.net
