Gunshots or firecrackers either way wish it would stop
- Any suggestions for what I can do to help you stop the nightly sounds
of a shooting gallery on the 300 block of Bryant street?
I've called 311 and I have to say that I was TRULY impressed by the
response. The officers were there within 2 minutes on Wednesday
evening and they spoke to the responsible parties. Unfortunately all
they did was talk. Now the individuals are just doing it later at
night when the cover of dark allows them greater anonymity and the
freedom to stop when the cops show up only to resume a few moments
later after the police car drives off. Last night they went until 3am
with firecrackers that have no visual affects that I can see. The
only 'benefit' is that it sounds similar to gunfire.
As my boyfriend pointed out at 2am, it has to be firework or else that
guy is a really bad shot because that's 20 'shots' in a row.
Like I said, I'm impressed with 311s response time but I can't help
but feel that if on Wednesday when they had the guys redhanded maybe
if something more could have been done then, we wouldn't be woken up
at 12, 12:15, 12:30. 12:42, 1:01 etc etc. etc.
The epicenter of activity appears to be corner of 3rd and Bryant and
the alley between Bryant and Channing in the 300 block NE. One guy
however loves to ride his bike shooting off whatever it is so that it
constantly sounds like drive by shootings up and down the block and
alley at 1am.
Again, anything I can do to help you stop this - I presume - illegal
