Wow Lil! That is a little unnerving when you're in city limits. I hope nothing horrible happened. It might have been like you said...someone shooting a racoon or something. Or maybe a domestic "disturbance." Of course, crime can happen anywhere. I think a good security system might make you feel even more safe. Look into it. I got one when I moved here. Love having the panic button and even the sign out front is enough to scare off most bad guys.

I sometimes hear what sound like gun shots at quite a little distance. I'm in the city limits, so it's illegal to discharge a fire arm. (except for self defense) But not far are big, huge countrish places...big fields and barns. I bet they're not within the limits and maybe someone over there is shooting coyotes or something. Plus, there's an Indian res not too far and they're always shooting off fire works....periodically, all year round. Crazy! lol.

We actually have an alarm system, and I like the panic button alot too. We don't turn on the door alarm while we are at home though, because I know that if the dogs wake me up at 2 am I will not remember to turn off the alarm before I open the door!

I'm going to check this week's crime sheet when it comes out next week. See if its mentioned.

Oh I know, I was just thinking it was one thing if they're in season even, even though it's illegal, its just two crimes if they're not.

They could be shooting coyotes, which is a possibility. I hear them singing at night a lot.
