Patrick Gillum should get some kind of award for criminal efficiency. Yesterday morning Gillum went on to the porch of an apartment on a busy street directly across from a park and blocks from a middle school, pointed a gun into the air and began firing. Then he did it again.
A SWAT team was called and four people emerged from the apartment, including Gillum. Most, including him, said that they'd been sleeping at the time of the shooting.
But a witness ID'd the 25-year-old as the shooter, and a search of the apartment revealed that a Glock 9 mm matching casings found in a bush outside was found under his bed.
Gillum hasn't offered a reason for his manly display of early-morning bravado. But a neighbor reported hearing an argument roughly 20 minutes before shots were fired.
Gillum has since been booked for reckless endangerment, violation of his parole and possession of a stolen weapon, as the gun had also been reported missing.
