Caller Threatens to Shoot Woman in Forehead
A Massachusetts Avenue woman told police at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 23, that she had just received a call from an unknown male who said that he had been hired to shoot her in the forehead.
The woman said the male, who had a “very heavy Spanish accent,” first asked her if he had the right address and then told her that he had a package to deliver. After again confirming the woman’s address, the male told the woman that he had been hired to shoot her in the forehead; he then repeated this five times, according to the woman.
The woman told police that she was unaware of having any enemies or debts.
