Police said they found two wounded dogs and children living in filth after being called out to 5506 Woodlawn Dr.

Witnesses said two men were in the yard beating two dogs with sticks.

Officers found two pitbulls in the yard - one bleeding from the neck and the other with blood around the nose. Jeremy Norman said one of the dogs (Beanie) had attacked the other (Gator).

There were three more dogs and a black lab. Inside were chihuahuas and two cats.

Police said the house was in disarray and dirty with items piled everywhere. They said there was dirt and grime on the walls and floors as well as a terrible smell. Blankets, clothes and shoes littered the floor, which was sagging in numerous places.

Outside were numerous piles of trash and junk.

Three children under 12 were at the house. Two of the children had dirty faces and clothing. The adults at the residence were Jeremy and Jennifer Norman, John Garrick, Ronald Garrick and a female.   

McKamey Animal Center was called, and three of the dogs were taken off. City housing was to be called to inspect the residence.

Kenneth Brown said he was dropped off at his cousin's house at 4724 Old Mission Road in Brainerd. He said he saw a black male wearing a gray hoodie and a black female wearing a black hoodie with fur lining. They were standing in the middle of the street.

He said multiple shots began to be fired toward his cousin's house and the next house. Then the couple in the street ran off.

A window was broken out and two bullet holes were visible in a wall.

Police found several shell casings in the street.

Police were called to an  address on Parkway Drive and found 28-year-old Kenneth Redman calmly raking leaves in the back yard.

Police were told he had tried to get in the house by breaking out a window. Then, when he spotted officers coming, he grabbed a rake.

The homeowner, Anna White, was called to the scene. She didn't know Redman, who was charged with vandalism.

Police found a red car on Heaton Street at the closed Harriet Tubman housing development.

A woman was slouched down in the vehicle. Asked what she was doing, she said, "I don't have to tell you anything."

She jerked the car in reverse and headed toward an officer. It took two officers to get her grip off the steering wheel and into custody.

Leondra Jones, 26, was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated criminal trespassing and resisting arrest.

Barger Academy Principal Greg Bagby said there was a break-in at the school at Brainerd Road and Moore Road.

He said several classrooms were broken into overnight.

Five desktop computers and a laptop were stolen.

At the Dollar General on McCallie Avenue, a black female wearing a black hooded jacket with fur and a large black bag with polka dots was seen putting food items into the bag.

She refused to open her jacket or bag and left without paying.

An arrest was made for theft under $500 when an employee identified the shoplifter as her cousin.

* * *

A woman on Primrose Lane heard a knock on the door, then someone beating on the carport door.

A door was then forced open and she was face to face with a white male about 20 years old wearing a fur-lined jacket with a fur-lined hat and blue jeans.

He fled when the woman hollered, "You SOB."

He got into a newer-model Jeep Cherokee that was silver or gray.

A couple returned to their residence at Shepherd View Circle and found a side door pushed in.

Items taken include TVs, a game console and an IPad.

* * *

Residents of Fagan Street were missing their 42" TV, 50" TV and PS3 after a burglary.

But the items were all found in the woods behind their house.

A man on Jarrett Court told police his daughter had been allowed to spend the night in their back yard.

Then, he said, he heard male voices.

His wife said she had given permission for "the male parties" to come over.

But the husband wanted no part of that.

The male parties had vanished by the time police arrived.
