early morning door pounding = gun drawn
This weekend I'm visiting my girlfriend who lives right off campus at a major university. She shares an apartment with 2 other roomates. This complex is extremely sketchy. Nothing but college aged kids. Lots of partying, fights, rapes, crime, etc. Last week a man was missing as prime suspect in a murder that lives in this complex. Well, early this morning at 2am we're all dead asleep in our different rooms (i'm in my girlfriend's room), when pounding starts on the door. I'm an EXTREMELY deep sleeper so I wake up to the dog barking, my girlfriend and the other roommate panicking and running around the apartment. They keep saying "no one is in the peep hole." I walk into the living room, and sure enough, steady and slow theres "KNOCK.....KNOCK.....KNOCK.....KNOCK" stops for like 30 seconds, then "BOOM.......BOOM......BOOM" I get my 19 and have it at low ready as I approach the door. When I have my eye to the peep hole, BOOM! someone knocks on it, but still there is no one in the peep hole.
So I back peddle from the door with my Glock at low ready towards the door as my GF and her roomate are behind me growing more and more panicked by the second. Right then my GF's phone rings. (Keep in mind it is 2:05 AM). Its from the OTHER roomate who we now notice is not in her room. The girl is screeming and sobbing pleading for us to let her in. I cautiously go to the door and still no one is in the peep hole. the girls behind me urge me to open it to see if she is there. So I slowly and with EXTREME SUSPENSION crack open the door, and sure enough, here is the 3rd roomate sprawled on her face drunk, sobbing, trying to crawl into the apartment. It was very creepy; think the scene in the horror movie The Ring when the demon girl creepily crawls up to the camera. My GF and her roomate rush over and pull her up and haul her to her bedroom.
This got me thinking about how terrible it could have been if some BG would have caught the other roomate, done something bad to her, then used her as a bait to get into the door for the other 2 girls. If the roomate wouldn't have called my GF I would have never opened the door.
Thoughts? Reactions? Did I handle this okay?
