Because they usually are… Neighbors shocked after shots fired into home, car on Rivermeade Drive in High Point.
And they acted like
insane average people.
After hearing shots outside their home…
“We decided to get up and go to the door and see what it was,” she said.
OK, here’s an important safety tip. If you hear gun shots, DO NOT go and look to see what is going on. Take cover. Military cover. Don’t just hide. (That is concealment.) Put something between you and the bad guys. Brick. Granite. Bookshelves full of books are a good option. DO NOT put yourself in the line of fire to satisfy your curiosity, or you may end up like the cat.
Oh, and crime is not something that happens to “other kinds of people” in “other kinds of places.” If you can read this, then you live in The Real World™ where crime can, and all too often does, happen. You are not protected by your zip code.
