    What? More info please. I live on 1300 block of Allison. Did not hear shots this am. Did hear shots last night – a block or so away. Can police or neighbors provide any other information on whether these were thought to be related? What about shooting victim’s condition?

    I heard the gunshots last night. Was hoping it was just fireworks. It was way more than 3…

      I heard at least 11 rounds. They did sound like fireworks, but then heard the helicopter and all the police cars… Heard 4 rounds this morning too. Makes you feel all nice and cozy inside.

    I was a witness to the shooting on Sunday. We were playing with the dogs in the tennis courts and saw a back male open fire on a black female. It struck me as domestic violence even then. Very shocking and sad. It was scary to be that close. We had to get on the ground and had an 8 month old baby with us. Just glad there was no crossfire. I’m still unsure if anyone was injured. Does anyone know? We also saw the shooter drive away before the poooce got there.

      How frightening. I don’t know. Police haven’t responded to my inquiries. Maybe Popville community can get some answers? Glad you’re ok.

    We had a group at our house that counted 8-11 shots fired on Saturday night. Does anyone else have any more details about this shooting?
