Gunman grabbed: Police responded to Keith Street and Thomas Avenue on a report of a man brandishing a firearm at 2:40 p.m. Oct. 13. A resident gave the police a description of the gunman’s car and it was found on the 1600 block of Oakdale Avenue with two people standing outside it. When officers closed in, the suspects went inside a house. The police knocked at the door and recognized that one of the occupants was on active felony probation.

A search of the house revealed a handgun in the backyard. The gun appeared to have been placed there very recently, because it did not have any dirt or debris on it. The victim identified the man brandishing the gun, and he was arrested on weapons and probation violations.
