Because they always are. Homeowner shoots through front door at would-be intruders.
A resident told police at about one Thursday afternoon, he heard two men singing Christmas carols as they knocked on the door, then tried to kick it in.
The homeowner shot at the men, who took off — one possibly in an older model teal car.
As for the neighbors?
“Kinda scary considering there was a gunshot about 200 yards, if that, from where I’m standing,” Lance Turner says.
Neighbors like Turner in the Lincoln Village neighborhood on the city’s north side off Cook Road are concerned.
