Thursday night around 10 pm, I was walking home along Alberta St, and suddenly police cruisers began speeding by with thier lights on from all directions.
There must have been 15 of them all together. As I walked by, it seemed like they were converging just south of Alberta on about 18th. Other cruisers set up a perimiter for several blocks in every direction. It was impossible to get closer than about two blocks from where the bulk of cops were.
My wife and I saw police taking what looked, from a distance, like shotguns out of thier trunks, but it could have been those bean bag tossers they like so much.
It seemed like there were a bunch of neighborhood folks out watching, and I expected someone would post a report here, but I haven't seen anything.
I also expected to see a story in my paper this morning, but nothing.
Does anyone have any details? Was this just an overreaction of bored cops, or did something go down?
Any info would be appreicated. Thanks.
