Officers were called to the 700 block of Southgate Drive on Tuesday, August 19, 2008, at 11:45 p.m. after a neighbor heard the sound of a gunshot in the area. Upon arrival, officers found that two unknown assailants, one armed with a handgun, had attempted to enter an apartment at 732 Southgate Drive.
