Maybe your original post wasn't clear enough...as you made no mention of the intent (nor the perceived intent) of the men showing up to the door. Were they armed? Guns drawn? Or were they furniture delivery/pickup men who got the location wrong (or right)? Did your brother know the men? Why jump to the conclusion that they were up to no good?
This reminds me of something that happened to me the other night...I was coming home from work (around 6PM), walked up the stairs to my apartment, put my key in the lock to open the door. But my key didn't work, so I kept jiggling it in the lock for a few seconds before I realized that I was on the second floor and not the third floor! Embarassed I sheepishly left and went up to my apartment. I don't know if anyone was home in that apartment or not, but I sure am glad that they didn't open the door with a rifle pointed at me! I'm also glad I don't live in a place where just walking up to someone's door is enough to have the occupants grabbing a weapon to greet me with.
