A little scary!

My mom calls me this morning as she is heading out to work saying there is something going on near my street. She said she passed 12-15 police and sheriffs cars all with light on. They officers were all outside the cars carrying shotguns! She said it looked like they were looking for someone. Low and behold the news is reporting that there were three robberies, one of which was at the gas station next to my street! Apparently the men ran, one fired at police who shot back and they killed him. They were searching for the other two. I locked the doors and set our security system. I guess they are still looking for one guy. The alternative school down the street was put on lockdown but students werent there yet so they just took them to the middle school. DSD's school which is next to the middle school was on lockdown but they didn't remove the students. I live in a quiet area. The only guns around here are hunting rifles. DH asked if I knew where his rifle was just in case. There is a bad area on the otherwise of this gas station but I have never thought that something like this would happen!

that is scary sorry to hear that, that was the other reason we moved off base and bought a house and my DD goes to school up the road so I didn't have to deal with lock downs on base.

So scary. Can you stay away from your home for the day?

Oh my! That is scary! Hopefully they found the last guy.

We live in a small town that is 30 min from the trooper barracks. Our little convenience store/gas station gets robbed 2 - 3 times a year. There's only been a couple of times where it's escalated with violence. It is scary.
