Majeed had previously rented this home on Welton Avenue from Hanes. Court records say he went to the Hanes home to get his $575-dollar security deposit. Family members say Christopher Hanes let him into the house and while they were discussing the matter Majeed shot him.

Court records also show Christopher Hanes was set to go on trial in August. He was accused of not revealing he was a convicted felon when trying to obtain a firearm.

He says Hanes received a copy of his record, it came back clean so he thought he could apply for the permit legally.

The town has received calls from as far away as Tennessee and Alabama inquiring about the creatures. Cline says the dinosaurs will stay in Glasgow until at least the end of the year, and might find a permanent home there. (------------)
