Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

An already freakish weekend just got a bit more bizarre.

Police spokesman Warren Mitchell passes along the following note from an incident that apparently happened this morning in Pleasant Grove.

Suspect came to a residence in the 800 block of Rose Garden and knocked on the door. The complainant answered the door and the suspect apparently requested to purchase marijuana. When the complainant stated he didn't have dope and closed the door, the suspect forced open the door and shot the complainant in the buttocks. The suspect fled. Complainant was transported to Baylor Hospital condition unknown.

Makes you wonder what the world's coming to when a guy with a gun can't find weed on a Sunday morning.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
