    At least he's the one that got hit in the scuffle.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Why would he hit a house on "Custer Street"? Not a history buff I guess! Maybe the scuffle threw off the homeowners aim?

    Many times when a trigger is jerked, the shot goes low to the legs.

    Police say Sovine lives on the next block over and is well-known to police. A neighbor tells Eyewitness News that she saw Sovine approach her door, but he saw her inside and turned around and left.
    When my brother was a kid, someone stole his Beagle. The neighbor actually watched them load the dog and put him in the truck. Given that the dog was kept in the back-yard, the thief was most likely someone that knew us as well as knowing about the dog. Perhaps they didn't come over with the hopes of stealing a dog but when they saw an opportunity was presenting itself, it was too good to pass up. I hear its a common thing around here, to have a Beagle stolen, etc.

    Alot of times when you've been robbed, its someone that your either know or a bum that's somewhat of a local. It appears this bum was scouting and when he found a house where no one was home, he must have thought he had hit pay-dirt. I guess he didn't count on the old man coming home to promptly place a cap in his leg. I personally hope he didn't incur a permanent disability so that he won't get to live off of our tax dollars for the rest of his life.
