|SHOTS FIRED AT THE BRAD PITT & ANGELINA JOLIE HOUSE |
Shortly after 4 a.m. on Nov. 27, gunshots rang out — just 25 feet from where Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie live with their four children.
Life & Style reports that a gunman, believed to be driving a Saab, fired two shots, striking a Range Rover owned by a local resident and hitting the driver’s side window of a camper van used by Brad and Angie’s security team. “It was crazy,��? neighbor John Martinez tells Life & Style. “If anybody had been in the car, he or she could’ve been killed.��?
On Nov. 29, one of the couple’s bodyguards — a man who identified himself only as Brett and often sleeps in the van struck by a bullet — looked stunned as he inspected the damage. “I’m doing fine, but I don’t want to talk about this,��? he told Life & Style.
And while police declined to comment, officers arrived on the scene minutes after the shooting, neighbors say. In the days after the incident, several unmarked police cars could be seen patrolling the perimeter of the sprawling Pitt-Jolie compound, while two blacked-out SUVs were posted at the main gate.
“The atmosphere has changed all of a sudden,��? says one local resident. But Brad’s rep says Brad and his family weren’t the targets of the shots, which hit far from the house. However, the resident adds, “You can tell their security guys are on high alert right now.��?
