Increased Crime Alert

Dear Residents,

Last week I notified our residents that gun shots were reported fired in our neighborhood. Since then, I have received another report of gun shots fired early in the morning on Friday January 29th. Two reports of this kind within the same week is alarming and unacceptable.

This morning I discussed the situation with Officer Miller of the DeKalb County Police Department. In response the police will increase the patrolling of Woodlands Hills, particularly late in the night/early in the morning. Officer Miller requests that residents continue to be alert and on guard. If you witness or experience a crime, please do not hesitate to call 911. Please continue to report crimes to the WHNA by emailing me at or Brad Grulke at

I would appreciate it if you forwarded this email to any neighbor or Woodland Hills stakeholder in case they are not included in our distribution list.

If you would like to help keep our neighborhood safe, I encourage you to join Woodland Hills Neighborhood Watch as a block captain.

Again, thank you for doing your part to help keep Woodland Hills safe.

  1. Is anyone else continuing to hear gunshots in the early morning hours? I heard them at 2 am about a week ago (about 5 gunshots in rapid succession). I was talking with another neighbor yesterday who heard them more recently around 4:00/4:30 am later in the week.

  2. I actually heard them again last night (Feb 21st) around 9 or 9:30ish. This is the second consecutive weekend I’ve heard shots being fired (the pattern seems to be 5 shots consecutively) and about the 4th time in the last couple of months.

  3. I heard 2 more at around 6:30 am on Feb. 23rd. I live at Weatherstone Condos. Shots sounded like they were coming from up the street behind the self storage place on Briarcliff, although it was hard to tell.
