There was a shooting, 1/4 of a mile from our house.
1 block from Jr's old elementary school.
Right along the route my 2 youngest take to their middle school.
This? Is the cops taking down a suspect.
IT'S 500 FEET FROM MY FRONT DOOR!!
I had already sent Eldest to school 20 minutes earlier but elected to keep Mo and Jr home. We locked ourselves inside the house, armed ourselves, and are now hunkered down with snacks & hot chocolate!
2 victims were flown to hospitals and there isn't any updates on their conditions. I hope they're ok. The cops are still looking for anywhere from 2 to 5 suspects in the shooting. At least 5 to 7 schools are on lockdown along with every day care in the area.We will be snuggled in bed, watching cartoons & peeping out the windows. The drone of the Sheriff's chopper has been constant since 7am. HHH had already left for an interview, so when a news report said a Good Samaritan had tackled a suspect that had outrun a sheriff's deputy, I was worried it was him. It wasn't, thank goodness, but that's how HHH is. He'd have run that guy to ground.
So now we sit.... and wait.... Choppers circling, police searching.
