"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", Sheriff Agnew said, adding that the two had met through Discord, an app that allows video-gamers to speak to each other online.

Virginia Police have now charged Skinner with breaking and entering with a deadly weapon with the intent to rape, rob or murder.

Then two hours later, at 4:27 p.m., Goochland authorities received a call about a man dressed in black attempting to break into the family's home on Steeplechase Parkway by smashing a glass door with a landscaping brick.

"The lady who shot Skinner didn't want to".

"All I can say is the manner in which he attempted to enter that home in the face of a firearm pointed at him and the implements we recovered from him - the only inference is that he had very bad intent", Agnew said.

The sheriff says Skinner methodically planned his trip to the USA, though he was uninvited, according to the paper.

Officers later determined Skinner had attempted to force himself into the adjacent home occupied by the mother and her two children.

When he arrived at the family's home, he yelled that he had hitchhiked 30 miles to the house and needed help. When the mother called her husband, he told her to grab a gun.

A Virginia mom is hailed a hero by neighbors after she shot an intruder who was trying to break into her house.

The Sheriff went on to describe Skinner at that time as "crazed".

The same line of thinking goes with the Lakers, though, getting Leonard will also increase their chances of signing LeBron James. The latest ESPN story suggested that former first-round pick Josh Hart could be involved in a trade with the Spurs.

The mother then locked the door from the basement steps to the main house after she and her daughter ran upstairs. He made his way to the girl's home in Goochland's Holland Hills and was shot in the neck by her mother when he tried to get in. The FBI is looking into whether federal charges are warranted.

Skinner was struck in the neck and remains hospitalized.

A spokesman from VCU Medical Centre, the hospital Skinner is in, said the New Zealander was in "fair condition".

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade on Tuesday confirmed it was in touch with the family of Skinner and had offered consular assistance.

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

Investigators said Skinner had arrived in the USA from New Zealand after talking to the girl using Discord, an online chat service that allows video-gamers to communicate via their PC or smartphone, reports the New Zealand Herald.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found Skinner lying injured in a front yard.

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

"When I sit back and think about it", Agnew concluded, "'You've got to be kidding me'".

Agnew said Skinner had planned on returning to New Zealand June 30.
