  1. Last night at about 9pm there was what sounded like a shootout on S Washington near the traffic circle. We went outside to see 2 boys probably 16 years old running down the street to a white hoopdy getaway car on MLK & S Washington.

    Does anyone know if they were apprehended or if anyone was hurt?

  2. Heard what sounded like 5 or 6 rounds, followed by another 5 rounds from another gun.
    Cops did a drive by within minutes, but didn’t look like they found anything.
    It all happened around 840pm.

  3. I heard this too. There were two bursts of gunfire of what sounded to me to be 3 or 4 rounds. The bursts of gunfire were just about 3 seconds apart. I looked out my window at 20th and Pine and saw a gray coupe with tinted windows speeding east on Pine, but no idea if the car was part of the shooting or not. It sounded like the shots came from a couple blocks west of me on Pine. About 5 minutes after the shots were fired I saw at least three police cars driving around 20th and Pine using search lights, obviously looking for someone.
