•A woman called at about 6:40 p.m. June 8 to report people trespassing on her Stillman Road property. An investigating officer located the trespassers and told them to leave. They did.
•Officers were dispatched at about 9:15 p.m. June 8 to an Evans Road residence after woman reported that a drunk man needed to leave before “anything happened.” An officer gave the man a ride to a Bryan Street residence in Houston.
•A woman called at about 6 p.m. June 9 to report hearing gunshots in the area of her Cessna Road residence in Cabool. An investigating officer determined that the gunfire was coming from a next door neighbor who was shooting at his trailer that had been destroyed by fire. The officer stated that the shots appeared to be going in a safe direction.
•An officer was dispatched at about 9:10 p.m. June 1 to a Boiling Springs Road residence at Licking after a man called to report that his girlfriend had let his dog out at about 8 p.m. and the animal had not returned. The man told an investigating officer that shortly after the dog went out, he had heard two gunshots and that a neighbor had told him she saw somebody shoot the dog. The officer made contact with the neighbor, who said she had also heard gunfire, but hadn’t seen someone shoot the dog.
Investigation of the matter continues.
•Deputies were dispatched at about 1 a.m. June 9 to a residence at Houston after a 21-year-old woman reported that her 22-year-old husband was suicidal.
The woman told officers that the man had gotten out of their vehicle on U.S. 63 and walked into the woods carrying a knife. She said she received text messages from him indicating he was going to kill himself. Officers found the man sitting under a tree holding a pocketknife to his throat. They persuaded him to put the knife down and then attempted to handcuff him for his own safety. The man resisted, but officers subdued him. He was taken to the Texas County Jail, where an ambulance then took him to a West Plains hospital for a 96-hour hold period, which he had agreed to.
•An officer was dispatched at 4 a.m. June 6 to a Hightown Road residence after a woman reported hearing gunshots. The officer was unable to locate a shooter.
•An officer was dispatched to a Northview Lane trailer park in Houston at about 7:50 p.m. June 1 after a man reported a possible burglary. The officer stated that the man was gone when he arrived, but that neighbors stated the man was drunk and had kicked the door of his trailer off its hinges.
•An officer was dispatched to a Country Aire Lane trailer park at about 2 a.m. June 2 regarding a report of loud music. The officer was unable to locate it.
