Local Murderer Armed and Loose, Banging at Door
So yesterday the neighborhood across from my subdivision had a woman beat and kill a man, steal his guns and van, and is now on the loose armed and dangerous. This morning, I had a loud banging on my door...which is unusual sinceI have a door bell. Well, I don't have any windows in or beside the doors (something I intend to change) so I grab my XD40sc and unlock and open the door in such a manner it isn't visible.
Turns out it was a Sherriff's Deputy. I said, "Hold on" and put the weapon up (I was wearing gym shorts) and went outside. Apparently some neighborhood kids played some harmless pranks last night and moved a chair and some yard art to the curb. Did the same at some other houses, moved some planters out in the middle of the road, etc.
He never saw my firearm and I never said anything. He was super nice. Said if we ever see or hear anything to feel free to give them a call. All of my encounters with LEOs since I've moved here have been great.
