         This crap started on the road I live on less than 10 miles away. Geez, back then I even had a girlfriend who worried about me going to the store. {#Lol}

Doug Duncan recalls 'three weeks of daily terror'
Wednesday - 10/3/2012, 7:31am  ET
During the 2002 terror attacks, then-Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan briefed victims' families on developments in the investigation. (AP)

 WASHINGTON - The call came when he was attending a conference in Chicago. His police chief wanted to talk to him.

 Former Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan said that raised a red flag.

 Chief Charles Moose didn't typically call Duncan when the county executive was out of town — unless it was important.

 It was Oct. 3, 2002 when Duncan received he call. He was told there had been one murder the night before and two more that morning.

Duncan immediately cut short his trip and raced back to a county in crisis.

 "On my way back to the hotel, I got another call saying someone else had been murdered, " he recalls.

 By the time Duncan got to the airport, there had been another shooting.

 "The whole flight home I sort of prayed that no one else had been killed, " he says.

 In less than 24 hours, five people had been killed in Montgomery County.
It would be the sniper shootings that would thrust Duncan, the man often referred to as the "Mayor of Montgomery County, " into the glare of the national media.
