LOUISA COUNTY, Va. -- Pastor George Hunley was shot and robbed when he stopped to help a family he believed was having car trouble in Louisa County, according to Louisa Sheriff's Office Major Don Lowe.

Hunley told police he had stopped to check on a man, woman and infant he saw in a car along the side of Chalk Level Road. That is when the "Good Samaritan" was robbed. A fight between the man and Hunley allegedly ensued and Hunley was shot twice.

Hunley told investigators he believed he broke the gunman's arm during the fight.

The broken arm, a bi -racial family, and an old navy blue Ford Taurus: that’s what detectives have to work with as they try to track down the man they say shot the Good Samaritan.

Sources said late Thursday the pastor was released from the UVA Medical Center, and investigators are hoping he can lead them to the exact spot on Chalk Level Road where the alleged robbery took place.

CBS 6 first reported on Hunley in April 2014, when his home burnt to the ground, started by a turkey fryer. That charred foundation has since been replaced with a brand-new one with a new house in Carson's Corner.
