    I'm surprised this is all it was. You would not have believed the police presence at the scene. They had the entire road blocked off. Are we sure he was unarmed?

    Get Kevin Holmes to stand outside and report.

    "A man and a woman had an argument".

    "He locked the door".

    I guess I will have to call around or go to Pittsboro and find out myself. Trust me, someone there will know what went down.

    These are adults and I was wondering why no names.

    Another story with no back bone. Obviously someone is sleep when they bring these kind of lame stories.

    DeathRow, I agree. But saying he locked the front door just doesn't have the same dramatic impact. lol

    The word "barricaded" is such a strong word for someone who simply locked the front door.
