When officers arrived, several neighbors said they believed the man was either hit by a car or assaulted. None of the neighbors witnessed anything, however some did report hearing suspicious noises. The man on the ground was responsive, but appeared confused. He did not know what happened, or if he had been hit or fallen down.

Gunman at Walgreens: At about 5:46 p.m. near the 34008 block of Hoyt Road SW, a call came in about a man with a gun at the Walgreens threatening people. Employees locked themselves in the back of the store. When on scene, the officer deployed their rifle and met an employee who told the officer several people were trying to steal liquor. A citizen who lawfully possessed a firearm confronted the would-be thieves, who then dropped all of the merchandise and fled the scene.
