A Winder woman said she was outside grilling chicken with her friends when one of her neighbors came outside with a shotgun and threatened to kill all of them.
The woman said the man stood in the yard of his Georgia Avenue home and said “I am going to kill you [n-word].” None of the other people standing nearby heard or saw the incident.
An officer made contact with the man who denied making any statements at all to his neighbor. The man said he walked outside with his BB gun to oil it. According to the man, as soon as he walked outside with the BB gun, his neighbors began screaming so he took the gun back into his house.
The gun in question, a Daisy BB gun with a camouflage stock, was positively identified by the complainant as the weapon she had seen her neighbor carrying earlier.
Due to the conflicting stories and lack of witnesses, no arrest was made.

Lucky for the BB-Gun guy, that the folks standing near by were there.
Expect more of this in the future, this is what the Obamas meant when they said to "get in their faces".
The hyper-sensitve left-wing democratic voters will engage in hyperbole the closer it gets to November elections.
