Follow up's on reporting is a thing of the past here, Heck I am still waiting on the car in the swimming pool story update. I think it is time for us to get a new source of information,

Woah, this is pretty serious; why on earth was the person who lives there detained after being shot at? Why was their house searched if they're the ones who reported the crime? None of it makes sense and neither side of the story seems to match up.

Omg thank goodness the occupants whom live on the other side of the duplex were unharmed ...
