This incident is tough for me to talk about..I am a 27 year old male, and was living in New Hampshire at the time, in a extremely safe town.
I lived alone with my dog Toby during this time and worked 6am to 3pm. Sharing a duplex was new to me and quite different, especially when your neighbors were very odd.
It was a lady in her 60s and a younger man in his 30s. I believed they were mother/ son, because they wouldn't speak to me, I has no cluw.
I tried making small talk but neither of them said a word.
The mother looked beat down with gray hair and she wore the same blue night gown every time I saw her.
I would see the son smoking outside wearing the same white wife beater since I moved in 7 months prior.
It was a summer night in July around 11pm, and I let Toby out in the backyard. Now, mind you, I share a backyard with these creeps.
Toby was running around and I heard the the neighbors slide door open. I saw the younger man in his wife beater walk out onto his deck and gave me a death glare.
My heart dropped and began feeling extreme anxiety.
I saw him reach in his pocket and pulled out a gun. He pointed it at Toby and fired 4 times. I screamed louder than I ever have in my life.
The man ran inside and closed his door. I began sprinting towards Toby, but he fled into the woods. I immediately called 911 and told them what happened.
The police arrived in 5 minutes and surrounded our duplex. They placed me in the police car and asked me to recount what happened. My dog Toby never barked and was the most behaved puppy.
So he had no excuse to shoot him.
The cops were outside about 15 minutes until they heard 3 gunshots. They rushed inside and found the "mother" and son deceased both by bullet wounds.
Come to find later the son had shot his mother twice and committed suicide with a single shot to the head.
Later that night Toby came back and was shot in his back leg. After a couple surgerys he came back brand new.
This was the most horrific things I have ever witnessed, and am lucky I was never shot
