August 2011: Inspector Anton Sampson of the Federal Protective Service, Office of Homeland Security, had just come home from work on April 11, 2011, when a 9-year-old neighbor ran up to his door and told him her friend was being held at gunpoint in a nearby house. Sampson grabbed his gun and badge and ran out the door to help. A man on the house's back porch fired shots at the inspector but missed. Sampson chased the gunman, but he ran away into the woods. Sampson went into the house, found the girl, and brought him to her house and safety. The girl's grandmother was found safe in the house. The gunman and an assailant with a knife were later apprehended.
