Default Three Shots Fired

Somewhere southeast of my house, not too far, couple hundred yards, max. Handgun. Brought dogs in, locked up, turned off lights on that side of the house, called cops, we're fine. No reason to think they are shooting at us . . . whoever they are.

Worrisome however. Illegal to discharge a firearm around here, so there's no mundane explanation.

I ask you . . . we move to the best neighborhood I've lived in fifteen years . . . and NOW I have to report gunfire?

Oy! Hope it was nothing serious Stay safe out there!

I came home to 4 cop cruisers a couple of doors down. No idea what happened but same sort of story, best neighborhood we've lived in, most cop cars I've seen!

Hope it's nothing too serious. I used to live in a house where there were gunshots CONSTANTLY. Scary (illegal here, too).

It was scary on the city where its illegal, but its even scarier in the country now where its not to hear it at three or four in the morning. Like, wtf, its dark, can you even SEE what you're shooting at??? And WHAT exactly are you shooting at anyway???

We live in the adorable suburbs and just a few weeks ago my boyfriend and I watched our street (our house is on the corner) get completely surrounded by cops and block all the roads. So we looked up a scanner online and found two guys that had shot a cop fled to the house across the street from us and all this nonsense was going down.

I was real excited when they called in the K9 unit at least.

I noticed something when we lived in Colorado... we went from the south end (super ghetto) before deployment to the north end (upper class) post deployment, and we saw more police in the north than we ever did in the south... I asked an officer why when they were at our complex once... his response? "North end is richer... nicer sh*t to steal and richer people to kill and steal FROM."
Scary, but I guess it makes "sense".

Oh, first guess, they can see exactly what they are shooting at, because they are shining deer.

Second thought is that they are shooting at the raccoon that they heard in their garage. I know my dad has grabbed a shotgun and run into the night after that *#$% coon

Third thought, of course, is that they have gone on a rampage to murder their neighbors.


About the richer neighborhoods and crime . . . my old neighborhood, which was safe enough and solidly working class, was between two nicer neighborhoods: roughly, where I am now, and Bell Haven, which is too rich for my blood. When we had a gun point mugging there, the cops showed up FAST . . . with a dog and a helicopter. They wanted to make sure crime didn't take root in Huntington . . .were it could spread (by implication to Virginia Hills and Bell Haven) and they also told me that they were certain the muggers weren't "ours" they'd come in on the Metro from DC looking for a place that had something to steal.

Not to mention, no one cares when something happens in the "bad" neighborhoods so you don't see cops very often.

That makes a lot more sense. I feel sorry for whatever deer it was the other night because it sounded like it took four shots to bring him down. deer aren't even IN season right now either! Wtf.

Shining deer is illegal. And the people doing it are usually poaching. I doubt they CARE if its in season or not.
