Saw a police man with an M16 rifle, sneaking up towards a house behind the dress shop on 6th ave this afternoon about 4pm. I didn't stick around to find out the details or see any bullets fly. An old man told me that the area had been taped off and that the police had been in the area for a while. Hope no one gets hurt.

That would be at around 6th and Pine. I was there an hour ago and it is still taped off. I wondered what was going down. I too hope everyone is alright.

C@TRH, I hope everything's alright over there.

Word on the street was the homeowner went out of town on vacation. When she returned, her house, which she lives in by herself, was full of people/kids. She called the cops, people inside refused to leave, and SWAT changed their minds. Crazed.

The TNT finally got something up about this.

We arrived home, just around the corner, about 6pm, and there was still quite a bit of police activity: roads blocked off, crowds of gawkers, etc... Nice to finally hear a bit more about the details, especially when it's in your own neighborhood.
