    Word of advice don’t shoot a gun a block a from a police station.

      Kids with guns a block or two from a police station, happens all the time in this city!

    Who still uses a revolver?!? That’s so 1980’s.

      Revolvers don’t eject shell casings. Less evidence for the cops to collect.

    It frightens me that this happened on a busy block of Ust during a busy time of the evening where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic. Fortunately no one was hurt, but we need to heed this as a warning for stepped up police foot patrol. Obama and family were on that very block just last week at Martha’s Table attending an event! Maybe he should go up there and hang out more often…. the police presence that afternoon was overwhelming to say the least.
