1) A little over a week ago, around midnight, I heard what I thought might be gunfire.
I don't know much about guns or what guns sound like outside of movies, but I heard two loud, sharp cracking /
popping noises (they didn't sound like firecrackers) coming from
somewhere along the train tracks or Mission Boulevard, probably
between the train depot and the creek. Anyway, I called the police
(and turned off all my indoor lights, and locked the doors).
