Intruders Shoot and Kill Va. Man

May 18, 2010

Fairfax County police say a man was shot to death in a confrontation with two intruders at a mansion in the Centreville area.

Police say after the gunmen entered the home through the four-car garage Monday morning, someone inside called 911 and screamed for help. As those inside the house fought the intruders, police say at least one shot was fired, striking one man.

Police say 39-year-old Jose Ramiro Rosales Cardona of Manassas, worked as a handyman for the family that lives in the home. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

The gunmen fled into the woods and escaped.

Public records show the owner of the house is a Prince William businessman who owns several companies, including a check-cashing store. Police don't know if he was targeted.
