The wife said it all started about 2:35 yesterday morning as her husband conducted his usual inspection of the house.
However, this routine inspection was far from ordinary. Just after he exited the bedroom, he encountered a masked man in the hallway, dressed in all black.
The intruder, according to the husband, touched him and said “Just cool.” But the newly married man yelled to his wife to call the police and then quickly returned to the bedroom, where he retrieved a cutlass.
As the wife attempted to hold back her spouse, she said he bolted out the door to confront the intruder. Then all of a sudden a single gunshot rang out.
The woman told OBSERVER Media that the scene seemed so surreal. She said the bullet barely missed her husband’s chest; it ricocheted off the wall and landed on one of two beds, the shell casing on the other.
The wife said she pulled her husband back into the bedroom, locked the door, hit the ground, and then called the police.
When lawmen arrived on the scene the gunman was gone. Police investigations are under way.
