This afternoon SWMBO and I were outside playing with the kids when we hear sirens and soon after the local LEO helicopter is overhead orbiting. We live near two jails, a prison, and numerous detention, juvenile offender, work release, and drug treatment facilities so we figure maybe an escape of some kind is in progress. Condition orange, but no big deal, a stranger will stand out on our dead end street.
Find out today a man on the next street died of what appears to be a "cleaning his gun" gunshot wound. SWMBO works for 911 and saw the call at work tonite for the medical examiner.
Please lets all take an extra minute to remember to be safe, this is a close to home hit for me.
