A simple knock on the back door turns in a horrifying experience for a Pitt County Man.

David Johnson says he was at home alone with his two dogs after eight Monday night, when two men came to his back door.

He says, thinking it was someone he knew, he opened the door without looking. Instead Johnson ended up staring down the barrel of a gun.

Johnson said, "I realized I could have been shot and the whole time it was happening it didn't for one minute or three or four, it didn't register with me. What registered to me was how angry I was and what I wanted to do but what go me back calm, was when he placed the gun right on my temple and told me to stay still."

Johnson's terrifying brush with two armed gunmen, is similar to another man's robbery. Bennie Rountree, an civil rights activist in Greenville, says two men made him hit the ground as he was robbed this past weekend.
