Marquell Gilbert, 28, underwent surgery at Georgia Regents Medical Center on Wednesday for gunshot wounds to the abdomen and right thigh. His condition has not been released.

At 11:35 p.m., two men kicked in an apartment door at the complex at 2219 Walden Drive, grabbed Gilbert off the sofa and dragged him outside, according to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report.

Gilbert was able to get away from the men and started running back into the house when one suspect pulled out a handgun and began firing. The suspects then ran away, the report said.

A witness told police they ran south on Walden Drive and one man got into a car.

Suspect information has not been released.

Unreal. Assuming this is some kind of thing, what if they had kicked in the wrong door?

"We keep a anti-kick bars in place in, our

house during the nights."

As do we, although I also installed ornamental steel doors in front of the standard entrance doors, front and back. That was prompted by the burglar my wife and I walked in on that I've mentioned before.

In spite of that, we live in what I still consider to be a very nice neighborhood.

Go figure!

When we move in to a new house.

We knock on every next door and backyard fence neighbors door.
I introduce my Wife and Myself.
We given them a business card and my Email Address.
If they have any problems to call me.
If they see something odd around my house to call me.
We are very clear call 24/7 Don't worry better safe than sorry.
We ask if they sleep later or sleep early so as not to disrupt them by the times we mow grass or weed.

We have made a lot of good friends that way.

It also lets us see what type neighbors we can depend on or avoid.

I Know You Won"t Believe This.

The house we built and lived in from 1977 to 2012, never had a key for it.

The new one on the same property is secured.

Maybe I should play the lottery.

I hope Marquell considers leaving town after this, somebody out there doesn't like him.
