Live WAY in the city limits, so it isn’t like someone shooting in the country. But I also cant tell other than outside, where it came from. Not sure what to do. It was just one… But I also live in a bit of a skeevie area, however it has been safe as far as I know. It is just unnerving!!

Please call the police. Even so that they can just have the alert. Nobody wants to call the police over every little thing but you would be surprised how many lives could be saved if someone would have reported something suspicious. I am so glad you are okay. Please just call though.

I agree with PP, I’d call the police and report it. I always did that when I lived in Philadelphia (and heard them on a sadly frequent basis).

Oh crap. I’d call the police, too. Maybe a bunch of people have already called – but maybe they’re just sitting around figuring that a bunch of people have already called so they shouldn’t bother. It can’t hurt!
I’m glad you are ok (but that is scary). :S

Not at all trying to downplay your experience (and also second to call the cops), but this was from an ‘up and coming’ neighborhood close to downtown on NYE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59CZBnPFbA4
It’s absolutely terrifying!

Yup. Call the cops!
@KristenGotMarried: That’s terrifying. And those commentors who think it’s fireworks? Those are definitely gun shots, no doubt about it.

Yeah… I now have heard a minimum of 2 DIFFERENT types of sirens go by, PD and FD I think… awesome….

@chasesgirl: Looks like it’s deal with, but I work sometimes as a call taker for the police and we get this all the time – sometimes founded, sometimes not, and there’s definitely no harm in making a quick phone call just as a heads up.

Now I am more worried cause there have been a bunch more sirens and they sound closer. I never have liked this neighborhood, it is not the WORST part of town, but it is not a good part either. Blahhh.
Edit: Though in my curiousity about what other not good things have happened in my neighborhood, I did realize that there are no creepers (well pedo creepers) around me legally because there is a school like 200 yeard away! By The Way those databases are really sad, there are a lot of bad people in the world…

@KristenGotMarried: That is completely terrifying! What is wrong with people? Don’t they realize those bullets have to come down somewhere. Idiots.
