I was walking my dog tonight on Bosworth near North Shore slightly before midnight when I heard one extremely loud what sounded like a gunshot coming from just a bit east of me. It was so loud and unexpected that I involuntarily screamed.

I would have called 911, but there was already a strong-- and odd– – police presence on Bosworth. On Bosworth and North Shore, a police car with a female officer driving was stopped at the stop sign. At least four cars were lined up in back of her, no one moving or honking. I kept wondering why no one was passing her.

As I walked further down the street, two mail police officers were walking around. Both of them were wondering aloud why none of the cars were passing her, too. They were speculating that the drivers have been drinking and didn't want to pass a police officer. So, that was three police officers out on the street – – for what reason?

After the gunshot, I saw two cars racing west on Pratt, squealing around the corner onto Ashland.

Anyway– – just wondered if anyone else heard the noise?
