I just heard gun shots (at first I thought it was fireworks) then a woman screaming and a baby crying, neighborhood dogs start barking, then LOTS of sirens... I went through and checked the locks on my doors and windows and set the alarm (I have 2 pit bulls so I usually only set it when we're not home) but I'm still freaked out and afraid to sleep...

Anyone wanna distract me?

We hear them too sometimes. Apparently there's a old man somewhere around that likes to play with a canon. We got used to him lol.

It's never a random thing where I live. I want to move but I can't afford it and my aunt can't take us in becuase she has no room left since her son and his three kids moved back in.

I swear I watch too much crime TV. Maybe I'm being paranoid.

Let us know what happened. Our old neighborhood turned to shit when landlords in the duplexes on the other side of us started accepting Section 8.

Right? I keep thinking about my ODD who sleeps down stairs... I wanna wake her up and make her sleep upstairs with the rest of us but I think I'm over reacting.

I keep looking at my local news station to see if there's anything but I doubt they'd have a report, it's only been 20-30 mins
