Gunmen Threaten Victim Living in Richland Backyard Shed
Around 2:20 AM Richland Police responded to a strange call.
Officers say the location is well known based on Police calls
Early Monday morning, Richland Police were called to a home in the 1900 block of Hood Street in Richland, after a victim said they'd been threatened by two armed men.
Apparently, the victim came to the area after seeing video evidence of the two men kicking in the door of the shed where the victim was living (presumably a backyard shed?).
They returned to the venue to find out what was happening, and said the two armed men threatened them with a gun, at which time the victim fled.
K-9, drone search fails to turn up suspects.
Richland Police assisted by other law enforcement units swarmed the area, but despite using a K-9 and drone unit, did not turn up the two suspects. The crime scene is being processed, hopefully, evidence that will help in the investigation.
It's curious that the wording of the report indicates the victim was living in a (backyard) shed, and we are left wondering what prompted the two burglars to go there.
More information hopefully will be released.
