    Conroe man fatally shot answering his door

    The recent attacks have neighbors worried. The latest one was off Oak Street near Conroe. When Cassandra Warren gets a knock at her door, she's reluctant to see who's on the other side. "It's really upsetting to me," Warren said. "I've always been able to leave the door open. Now that I know someone has been shooting at people's door&" Warren's neighbor, a disabled veteran, was killed Saturday night after someone knocked on his door. Police say the 57-year-old man peeked thru the window curtain to see who it was and was shot once, square in the head. Two other people were inside the house and saw it happen. "We are contacting the people that were here, getting statements from them and also canvassing the neighborhood," said Sgt. Bob Berry with the Conroe Police Department. Even worse, this is the second time a gunman fired bullets into a front door in this neighborhood in less than a week. "They shot in their door Thursday night," said Warren. Warren heard two shots blow through another neighbor's front door Thursday night and called the police. No one was hurt that time, but it does make her think. "I'm wondering if this is a pattern," Warren said. While police aren't calling it a pattern, they are investigating the crimes together. "Some of the cases have some similarities, but aren't exactly the same," said Sgt. Berry. Leaving Warren locking her door behind her for the first time in the 50 years she's lived here. "It happened Thursday night and then this man got killed Saturday night - that's why I'm really skittish , because I'm wondering if they're gonna be knocking on my door next," Warren said.

    Yeah, since they didn't seem to want anything.

    What's bad is that he didn't even open the door (sounds like anyway) my back door also has a window instead of a peep hole.

    This would catch a lot of individuals 'off guard'...shot when you DIDN'T open the door? This is not good...hope this dirtbag is put 6 feet under very soon.

    Very strange indeed.

    That is scary, get shot when you look to see who is at your door. And he didn't even open the door. Very bad.

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.

    Very ruthless! I think chivvalry got it right: "Two words... video camera." They will walk up on someones porch who has a video recorder going and they will have their image on the news, then their days will be numbered. Sounds like the neighborhood needs to arm themselves, and when there is a knock, check it out from another angle (if possible), then put some lead in this dirt bag so he can take a dirt nap.

    Then I can choose how I want to view the gates, as very few will take a chance on the dog and try to reach the door. If the individual is known to the dog, I can view either door without risk.
