CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR)–There is new information about the murder of 27-year-old Farzad Sultani, a Chesterfield man who died Monday morning in a home invasion and shooting, according to Chesterfield Police.

Sultani’s older brother shot back at his brother’s attacker, police said.

Around 3 a.m. Monday the gunman shot his way into the house on 12000 block of Little Pond Lane, off Midlothian Turnpike. He shot into the back door to break the glass and got in that way,  and then killed Sultani, according to police.

The gunfire neighbors reported hearing were from Sultani’s older brother, who told police he woke up, discovered the gunman, got his own gun and shot back.

That’s when the gunman fled the scene.

The brother told investigators that the intruder’s gun had a silencer and possibly a flashlight attached to the handgun, according to a report from the Richmond Times Dispatch.

Investigators are still piecing together the entire scene with information from Sultani’s brother.

Sultani was taken to Johnston-Willis Hospital and transferred to VCU Medical Center before he died as a result of his injuries.

Officers do not believe this was a random act.

When officers arrived, they found 27-year-old Farzad Sultani, who lived at the residence, had been shot by an intruder.

Sultani was taken to Johnston-Willis Hospital and transferred to VCU Medical Center before he died as a result of his injuries.

    This story from the brother just don’t sound right. How do you know that the intruder was black in dark clothing at 3am? Maybe the older brother killed his younger brother? It’s strange, but could it be true? I hope not!

      I agree!!! The brother’s story just doesn’t add up!! Maybe he’s telling the truth.. But his story is quite fishy!

    This family has been through hell. They lost their parents when a bomb landed on your their in Afghanistan. The siblings were separated when they came to the States but were reunited again. They worked hard to stay together and make a new life in the US. Please don’t throw accusations like that. It’s enough that the family is burning in grief right now. It’s very insensitive and ignorant to make these false accusations against another sibling. May be keep your thoughts to yourself until there more facts from the police…

      The real problem is in apts that glass sliding door is impossible to secure.I always had a problem with that.for this very reason.

    I read the story about his parents death and their history as growing up, I can only imagine how hard that can be. I’m only saying that the brother’s story isn’t making since to me. How would the intruder just come in and go directly to Sultani’s room and only shoot him? The story said there were other people in the house, why no one else got shot? There is such thing as “sibling rivalry”, or jealousy could have played a part. I hope it doesn’t come back that the older brother is the actual suspect. Even though, this is MY OPINION…I still feel bad for the family for their loss.

    Just because there are tv shows like IV or I almost got away with it, doesn’t mean every sibling has jealousy or has that heart of murdering their own blood. C’mon ppl there are still some kind families that do exist. And would never do such a thing, the intruder was black and black so no one could see him and used the slider door to enter. The brothers have nothing to do with this in fact the intruder attempted to shot the others too. But he couldn’t kill all because the older brother took his gun out he got scared and ran away. Common sense.

      @Sexcnva because I read the whole news article unlike you. And about my spelling this isn’t a spelling class that you are checking my mistakes. You should search for your own mistakes thank you

  • Sexcnva

    @Nila…How do you know the intruder was black? Were you in the house too? In my statement I said it was my opinion not a fact. Before you hit “post comment” check your spelling and grammer, sweetheart!

  • Sexcnva

    @Nila…calm down. I did read the whole article, that’s why I was able to point out some statements that just aren’t making sense to me. Let’s not make this about you and I. Oh yeah, I see you took my advice and did spell check….I’m proud of ya!

    My thoughts!

    From what I have learned about this family is this.

    The females practice Sharia Law, wearing Islamic Clothing.

    Some American in the services who perhaps had been in Afghanistan saw this and learned about the family.

    He had his own dark day’s in Iraq or Afghanistan and was about to take it out on a Muslim Family here in the states, and saw the Females wearing Islamic clothing and he decided to take them out as enemy’s .

    I have weapons for the last fourteen years, it is not an easy task to obtain a silencer (if he truly had a silencer). The weapon is much easier to obtain, but; silencer is not.

    I would look around the neighbors and see who recently came from Army and is living in the nearby homes.
