Gunfire in Petworth last night?

From the Petworth Yahoo Listserv comes this disturbing report:

“I can tell you what it was, as we saw it happening. The 10 – 20 shots in rapid succession? That was 2 teenagers riding bikes down the alley. (That’s the large square alley behind the Safeway. They were riding along the part behind 10th St. that runs N-S.) One had a gun that he was shooting into the air. It was a handgun. We could see the muzzle flashes.

We called the police. I don’t know if they responded, as the kids were on bicycles heading out of the alley. We did give a description and tell the police which way they were heading until the got out of sight.”

Hmm, maybe the Petworth soccer team won an important match?
