Police: Roxbury man duct-taped in home invasion

Boston Police report they are investigating a home invasion around 9 p.m., Sunday at 51 Fenwood Rd.

According to police, a 29-year-old resident was watching TV when he heard a knock at the door. Believing he knew the guy he saw through his peephole, he opened the door. The 5'6", 150-lb. black man walked in:

Once the door was open two additional unknown males entered the victim's residence. Suspect #2 was described as 5'6", 160, brown skinned black male, with curly hair, wearing a navy shirt and blue jeans. Suspect # 3 was described as light skinned black male, 5'09", 175, wearing a light colored shirt, shorts, and a navy blue hat. The victim reported the suspects demanded his firearm and money from his safe, before duck taping and placing him in the bathroom. The suspects took the victim’s black Walter P99C 9mm firearm, possibly a box of ammunition and an IPhone, and fled in an unknown direction.

Yeah, he wasn't quite that tall.

This guy had a 9mm P99c ( and by the way it's a Walther not Walter) and didn't get off one shot?

Maybe he had it locked up

Maybe he had it locked up like, the many responsible gun owners out there would. As the report says, he thought he knew the guy; I generally don't arm myself when answering the door, especially when the face looks familiar.

The lesson here

is don't lock your gun where you cannot access it. Keep it tucked in your budge. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
