Neighbors reported him firing a gun into the air and then into a vehicle.
He had a five-hour standoff with the police, at points holding the gun to his own head. The police were able to take him alive when the robot they sent to look in the window showed that he had passed out. From previous conversations he and I had had, I knew he was a big believer in having guns in the home for self-defense.

On a personal note, I struggled with reading the scripture passages because the authors selected the King James Version of the bible to cite. I struggle reading the old English.
