Well it was an exciting evening in the Emmelman household last night. The wife and daughter were in my bedroom watching something on Animal Planet while I sat here in the front room doing some programming. At about 9:40 pm I heard someone pull into our driveway (not unusual as we are the third house from the end of a dead end street). A couple of seconds later someone was knocking rather loudly at our storm door. Seeing that it was late and we never have guests drop by I went into the bedroom and retrieved my pistol. I then heard the car door shut and what sounded like the car pulling out of the drive. I reached over to turn off the overhead front room light so I could look out the front window. There was also a table lamp next to the window and vertical blinds. As I reached over to the table lamp I heard what sounded like a brick hitting the front window followed by a shower of glass. Still not fully understanding what just happened a second loud noise sounded and more glass and drywall flew into the air. I then realized that two shots had been taken at my house. MPD was called and did their normal stellar job in investigating the incident (including recovering the two bullets). One round went through the front window and hit a steel music stand. The other went through the wall and into the kitchen where it hit the back wall and bounced back into the front room. Looking back at where I was when the shots where fired one round went to the left of me and the other to the right. Only by the grace of God both missed me by inches. Oh, the only fatality, a lava lamp on the table next to the window. BOY those things explode! Glass EVERYWHERE through the house!
