Police were called after an assault at that location just after 10 pm on Saturday night, police say.

When officers arrived at the residence, they were told by the two persons living there that the unidentified suspects arrived at their door that night demanding to see their son in regards to a gambling debt. When the suspects were informed that their son was not at home, one of the suspects drew an automatic pistol and slid the slide back, cocking the weapon.
