(MURFREESBORO) Murfreesboro Police rushed to a Wenlon Drive apartment after receiving reports that an armed man was pounding on the door.
It appears that the male had reportedly been with a woman who lives at the apartment. That man later spoke with police on the phone and was asked about a pistol that apartment residents said he was carrying while pounding on the door. He told the officer that he had a "carry permit".
After that, the phone conversation with police ended abrubtly when the line went dead.
According to the police report, the woman who answered the door described the pistol, "It did not look like a normal handgun, because it was bigger."
"LIVE" on FaceBook

He told officers that he was there merely to get his belongings.
