This is just strange. Folks up in this nice, relatively quiet Plano neighborhood got a bit freaked out — understandably so — over a strange series of events that involve an injured man and a possible bomb explosion near an Atmos natural gas control station in the 3600 block of West Parker Road overnight.
First police got 911 calls about gunshots heard in the area. Then when police arrived at the scene, neighbors said they heard the sound of a bomb going off — rattling windows and everyone. One guy said it sounded like a thrown grenade.
Honestly, I don’t think I’d know what a thrown grenade sounds like. Would you?
Then there’s the severely injured man, who claimed he was hit by a car, but who looked more like he had an explosive blow up on him. Like something went wrong. Neighbors found him stumbling, bleeding profusely, and screaming for help. He told police he’d been hit by a car, but that didnt jive with his injuries. Next neighbors called Atmos Energy when they heard a hissing sound coming from a natural gas pressure control station. FBI agents and Atmos inspectors found no evidence of tampering.
Still, if I lived in that ‘hood, and I have friends who do, I’d be popping a couple Xanex and demanding some answers.
