Yay gunshots

I'm working in Paramount right now, on the corner of Melrose and Gower, and I just heard five gunshots. Now there are cops out there with shotguns, helicopters overhead, and squad cars everywhere.

Paramount security just came by to make sure a stray round didn't go through one of the windows.

So, SE++, what tales of "ugh not this shit" have you had recently?

    I guess around here it would be when I'm woken up at two in the morning by fire trucks. I know that someone has set their house on fire again cooking up a batch of meth.

    Last year I was having a garage sale and some dude decided to hold an elderly couple hostage a block over.

    The cops came by and saw our sale and decided to reroute traffic past my house.

    Lots of business.

    It was cool.

    Oh and the guy ended up shooting himself in the face.

    I was in a cab on New Years once, and when we were stopped at a light, a group of people walked over and shot the streets lights out around us.

    I hear gunshots from time to time, but I don't worry about it much.

    A coke dealer next door to my house beat a guy with a baseball bat in his front lawn a few weeks ago, which brought the cops to my house.

    Bit of a hassle but man the deals are worth it.

    I was housesitting for my grandparents out in the sorta-country in the middle of winter. Each house in the area was separated by about a football field. It's like 10 at night, I'm watching a movie or something, and I get a call from one of the neighbors.

    "Hey, I think your other neighbor's house is burning down."

    So I run out to check it out, hit an icy patch and bloody the hell out of my knee. But sure enough, my neighbor's 3-story farmhouse is a raging inferno.

    Felt bad for them but it was a pretty sweet view.

    There were three cop cars in front of my apartment complex when I got home last night

    There was also a guy, possibly a plainclothes cop, walking out of the driveway, holding a walkie

    Add one helicopter circling above the building

    I didn't hear any shots or see anything, and I still don't know what/if anything happened

    Once, I was in a car with some friends, and there were two dudes wearing ski masks standing out in front of his apartment building. My friend not being from the city, just sat there and watched them. He got the clue to floor it when they ran over and grabbed the car door handle.

    I worked in Lawton, Oklahoma for several years. Its right next to Ft. Sill, the artillery training base. You get used to hearing the thump of artillery at all hours.

    Some crazy african lady outside my flat screaming at the top of her lungs "call the police, call police, aaaaagggghhhhh, there's someone in my house" for fucking ages.

    Turns out her husband was "entertaining" another lady.

    Was simultaneously fuck annoying but also hilarious.

    One time when I was in Junior High we were on the bus in the bad part of town and we all got to witness a mugging.

    Then some other time on the same exact street watched some guys paint penises on the houses

    Nothing too exciting like you guys, but it was something

    A year or so ago in Olympia there was a lot of protests down at the port about military shipments yadda yadda.

    I'm out freezeproofing the faucets when I hear a couple of very loud and distinct bangs from the northwest, from the direction of Downtown.

    Turns out they were concussion grenades.

    The worst thing I've ever known to happen in my neighborhood in the last few years was when one of my neighbors' condo was on fire.

    :lol:

    I havent lived in the ghetto for a long time but I did grow up in North Pomona during the crack epidemic. Had a crackhouse right across the street, and their neighbors were Mexican gangsters from LA looking to expand. Both houses had a kid my age in them so my family never got hassled.
    This does remind me of a funny story... these gang members were shooting guns off in front of my house one night and my dad goes outside and walks right up to them. I couldnt hear all of the conversation but basically what I did hear went something like: "WTF I got kids in the house, what are you guys doing?"
    They were older cousins and uncles of my best friend who lived next door, and they apolgized, packed it up and went inside.

    I found out years later that my dad didnt know they were from next door when he went out... so I never went through that whole angsty teen phase where you diss your parents becuase I knew that if my dad would confront armed gang members he would have no problem putting me in my place.

    I dunno, I think I'd want drunken fire-fighters saving me, because odds are if my house were burning down, the first thing I'd want is a very stiff drink. Or morphene for all the burns.
