SWEETWATER-Not everyone was thankful Thursday night as Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Russell spent part of it figuring out who fired shots and pulled out a knife at a house just outside of Sweetwater.

Russell said it was around 8:15 p.m. when he went to the Mountain View Road home and talked to Randy Brewster, who said he had been at a redlight in Sweetwater when David Martin and Melissa Standridge pulled up beside him.

Brewster told Russell that Martin got out of his car and started beating on the window of his car. Brewster said he took off toward his house and the couple followed him.

Brewster told Russell he pulled into his driveway and as he was coming around the house he saw Martin coming toward him, aiming a red laser light at him. Brewster said he heard a gunshot and ran into the house.
