    Paging Brianne… While you are sipping hot chocolate in your little listening sessions, please take a moment to notice the crime happening right under your nose.

    We live in this block and I was home when the shits were fired. Ended up with bullet holes in our car and a shattered back window. One neighbor with a bullet through a window and one with a bullet in the wall. Craziness at 1230 in the afternoon. Police were great and thorough and looking to match the shells/bullets to other open cases. Two guys were invoked and went in opposite directions. At least 4 neighbors gave good descriptions.

    We’ve lived here 12 years and it’s been mostly urban quiet. A few issues here and there. The guns easily found on the street are insanity.
