Police Investigate Gunshots Outside VP Biden’s Delaware Home








” Law enforcement officials have boosted security at the Delaware home of Vice President Joe Biden after several gunshots rang out from a vehicle speeding by the property over the weekend.

  The vice president and his wife were not at their Wilmington home Saturday night when the shots were fired and there were no reports of injuries, authorities said Sunday.

  Biden’s office said the vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, were briefed Saturday night, as was President Barack Obama. Biden’s office referred all other questions to the Secret Service. The vice president was set to speak Monday morning in Wilmington at a Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast organized by a minority women’s group.

  Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said the shots were fired at about 8:25 p.m. Saturday on a public road outside the home’s secure perimeter. Biden’s home is several hundred yards from the road. Secret Service personnel stationed at the top of the long, winding driveway leading to Biden’s home heard the shots, saw the vehicle drive past the home at a high rate of speed and flee the scene.”

   Maybe it was Jill on the balcony , letting loose a couple blasts to chase off some intruders … on second thought they better check the front door for damage … LOL

Gunshots Erupt As Orange Sheriff Talks About Troubled Complex



Shots Fired Near Sheriffs Meeting




” Sheriff Jerry Demings was in the middle of explaining the challenges with addressing crime in an Orlando-area apartment complex when something rang out that sounded like gunshots.

“I don’t know if that’s gunfire or what that we hear in the background, but that’s part of the challenges we have,” Demings said.

  Demings and Orange County Commissioner Tiffany Moore-Russell were in the midst of a news conference to talk about Tymberskan Apartments Monday, a complex off Texas Avenue in the Holden neighborhood.

  Tymberskan may be well-known to those who follow crime in Orlando: since the start of the year, there have been two homicides there. Sheriff Demings said his agency averages about six calls to the complex a day — an average of 2,000 calls for service year, over the last four years.”










… One Reported Injury




” Gunshots fired near Capitol Hill Thursday prompted authorities to place the the U.S. Capitol on lockdown for less than an hour as officers swarmed the building and surrounding area.

CNN quotes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as saying there has been “one injury.”

Members of Congress and staff members were told by Capitol police to “immediately shelter in place.” Less than an hour later, a message on a TV screen in the Senate press gallery flashed an “all clear” message.

The incident involved a car chase that began near the White House and ended near the Capitol, 16 blocks away, CNN and NBC reported.

Security was heightened at the White House as a precaution. ”

Grandson Shoots Repeat Burglar Who Stole From His 98 Year Old Blind & Deaf Grandmother With Shotgun





” There is nothing that gets my blood boiling more than someone who takes advantage of the elderly or disabled.

A Michigan man, who cares for his 98 year old grandmother, who has trouble seeing and hearing, became alarmed when the real time monitoring system he used to keep an eye on his grandmother became disconnected so he went to her home to investigate.

When he arrived, he found that thieves had forced their way into the home and stolen the laptop that he used to monitor his grandmother’s condition along with an ATV from the garage. He reported the crime to police, and fearing for this grandmother’s well being decided to spend the night. He also brought a shotgun along should the thieves return.

Return they did.”
