    1. It was friggin' scary to hear! We noted the time and then saw it in the news the next day. Heard the getaway car. Live mid-town in lovely townhouse development but my unit faces the outer un-sanctum. First time I KNEW for sure what I'd heard was a gunshot. No one hurt and an arrest made shortly after. We were just ear witnesses but still scary.

  5. While we keep hearing these on the news, we react indifferently but experiencing something like this first hand is really scary.
