  • Michael and Shawn Brown had quite the surprise when they arrived at work Tuesday morning.
    Just as they showed up to Prenger's Top Gun along U.S. 61 in Hannibal at 8 a.m., law enforcement swarmed the property.
    As it turns out, according to the two employees, their boss Mike Brown pulled a knife out on his wife, fellow Top Gun employee Angie Brown. The couple are relation to Michael and Shawn.
    "From what I understand, it's two different stories," Gary Hilgenbrink, the Prenger's Top Gun district manager based out of Quincy, Ill., said. "It's more of a marriage deal."
    Attempts for comment from the Hannibal Police Department were unsuccessful.
    Michael Brown said Mike and Angie are going through a divorce and allegedly an argument lead to a knife being drawn. Shawn Brown said authorities took the knife and while Angie left for the day, Mike stayed on the clock.
    "We're waiting to see how the police handle it," Hilgenbrink said. "We just got to keep those two apart for right now.
    Hilgenbrink added Angie Brown has put in her two-week notice.
    Until word gets back to him from law enforcement, Hilgenbrink said Mike Brown is still employed and currently not under any reprimand.
