Brown says the five burst into the home with guns, corralled the family into one room and put a gun to the father's head. He says the younger McComas and his mother were beaten during the invasion.
The sheriff says considering the nature of the crime, the public should consider those still on the run as armed and potentially dangerous.
Onslow County deputies now say they have a person in custody in connection with a home invasion that seriously injured two people.
The attack happened early Sunday morning on Howell Road in Hubert.
