Around midnight my time(I’m normally up until 2AM most nights anyways), I heard a low brakes screech sound. No alarms there, I hear similar all the time, as a neighbor has people in and out at all hours. But, right after, I heard what I think were 6 shots. Very close by. Not at my house. Doesn’t appear any property damaged or anything hurt here. Kids and wife in back rooms upstairs, no harm, no worries. Pugs asleep on the sofa, doing great. Me? Upstairs in the computer room, closest to the line of fire but I think in all actuality. I think this was a second misguided retaliation upon a house where the person who is supposed to be the intended victim has been gone for well over a year. I guess criminals and idiots with handguns don’t check properly records. Not sure if I heard shell casings, but I’m fairly sure it was handguns.
Worse part was I didn’t have my cell phone on me. Had to run to the bedroom to get it, then go make the call.
Called 911. They say they’ll send someone out immediately. Been over 100 minutes at this point. Good thing no harm here. Makes me angry nobody has shown up.
I kinda dislike late night excitement like this.
Anyhow, all is safe here. Hopefully all is safe elsewhere. Last time something like this happened, it was late afternoon and several bullets went through a van, the garage door and most lodged into the house. Nobody at that house got hurt, thank goodness.
