hey miss heather,
sad that this is my first instinct when this happens, but someone fired a gun (from the stoop of my building, as far as i can tell, regretting that first floor apartment now) on india between franklin and manhattan, maybe half hour, 40 min ago. actually an admirably rapid response from both uniformed and plainclothes cops, though i imagine following the whole quaalude thing they’re out in greater numbers.
the boyfriend and i heard arguing on our stoop, as i went to get my glasses heard lots of “you’re drunk, calm down” followed by “NO GUNS NO KNIVES MAN! NO GUNS, HANDS UP”. as my ass was already on the way to the floor around that time and when the guy fired, i didn’t see what happened, but saw lights and heard cops within about 2 minutes. they ran towards manhattan ave and a few min later led a guy back in cuffs. they’re still hanging around talking to folks.
so, yeah, yikes. looking forward to hearing what in holy hell this was all about.
You and me both. I can only hope the peeps at 200 Franklin Street enjoyed their box seats for this shit show. Yeesh.
