Sirens to the left of me.... Sirens to the right of me.... and the program COPS is on TV. How appropriate.
We're having a little excitement in the hood. I had made a quick run to the store and on my way back, traffic was stopped at a couple of different places to let several police cars through with their sirens and lights going. They weren't dallying, either.
I got to my apartment and all the while I could hear police sirens coming from various directions. I saw several more police cars wizz by at different times, then came a SERT vechile. (Special Emergency Response Team) A few minutes later a Fire Rescue truck went by and thats when I noticed a TV news helicopter flying over head, circling. Up from the South came another helicopter from a different TV station. I went out to look to see where they ended up going and it looked as though it was a few blocks away.... whatever "it" was.
Apparently four people robbed a liquor store and they abandoned their car about four blocks away from here and each ran out into the neighborhood. It happened at a place where I frequently go by when out shopping. Thats about as close as I want to be to any police action.
The helicopters are still circling, Interstate Avenue is blocked (rush hour traffic, too) and the hunt continues. I must go see if anything else is on the news now.
