“Dear PoP,

I heard shots fired around 2am last night… about 20 of them, near 13th and clifton. i called the cops, and it took at least 10 minutes before anyone arrived, and then all she did was get out of her car and look for shells.
Do you have any info on what happened???”

Anyone have more info? I have to say, sadly, I don’t think the police can do much more than collect shells if there are no witnesses on the street. Perhaps there is a surveillance camera at this location? I know in the past this corner 14th and Clifton has been the scene of previous violence.
