The victim, speaking to the Hispanic juvenile, noted the boy spoke good English but when he questioned him about the theft, he suddenly couldn’t speak it anymore. The officers questioned the boy, who couldn’t remember which story he was going with, so he said he didn’t speak Spanish either, nor remember his birthday. Eventually, the cops were able to look into the apartment, but the X-Box was not located.

Short version is that the person shot and the man who shot him got into an argument and the person shot pulled a gun. The other man, upon seeing this, pulled his and fired, striking the man in the chest. The man who is in the hospital was charged with aggravated assault. Oddly enough, both men were armed at the time of the argument.

A man was contacted by someone claiming to be an IRS agent who told him he owed $2,800 and he needed to pay it today or be arrested. He followed the instructions to purchase a Money Gram Card and, after paying it, realized it was a scam. How many times have we gone through this?Repeat after me: The IRS doesn’t arrest you. The IRS doesn’t take Money Gram / Money Pak Cards.
A man called the police on June 9 reporting that he received a call from a Lt. Johnson from the Fulton Sheriff’s Department regarding a warrant.
