“Dear PoPville,

Just wondering if anyone else heard 4 gunshots around 2am Saturday night on 9th St NW between Kennedy and Jefferson? They woke me out of my sleep and sounded like they were right outside of my window. By the time I rolled over to call 911 the cops had shown up on the scene (within about 5 minutes), possibly because they were parked around the corner and heard them. Their sirens weren’t on. The cops walked the block for about 15 minutes, but seemingly didn’t see anything, so left shortly thereafter.

I sometimes wonder whether [insert whatever word you want for a person who would do this] shoots randomly in one location to lure cops to that location and away from whatever corner or location the cops are parked at in order to engage in some illicit activity. Is this possible?

I can’t figure out the point otherwise. I didn’t hear any shouting, running and it doesn’t appear anyone or anything was shot. I thought maybe I heard a car drive away, but couldn’t be sure.”
