RE: [MPD-5D] GUN SHOTS AT 3:30AM - Wednesday
- I agree, always call. Everyone should always call when shots are heard
within their vicinity. The more calls and information the police service
receives for any one incident, the better they can ascertain the most
appropriate action. Give as much specific information as you can and do not
be concerned with how useful the information is.............that's not our
If there is a certain protocol that should be followed by anyone calling in
to 911 to report hearing shots fired within their vicinity, or any other
pertinent information that would assist us in being the most help to police
in these situations, it would be helpful to have that information offered to
us from the police service in either this forum, or at our local meetings.

I say ALWAYS call. I would even call 911, rather than 311, if I had just
heard shots. Hopefully those closer to the situation called, as well, but
would be better to have too many calls than no calls.

I heard gunshots at 3:30am this morning(my pregnancy keeps me awake at
night). Sounded like the shots came from a semi-automatic gun - five
shots in rapid succession. The shots didn't sound like they came from
anywhere near me, therefore I didn't know if it would be helpful for
me to call 311 and say," hey I heard gunshots and they sound like xxxx
but I don't know where they came from." I also assumed, maybe wrongly,
that residents near the source of the gunshots would give ya'll a call.
I listened for ambulances or police sirens but didn't hear anything.
This is very disturbing to me. Since I am new to living in a region
where stuff like this is common, can you advise me on whether or not
my call would have made any difference? Also, can you tell us what
Thanks very much.
