I was driving south on Eastern. At the movie theatre, I was passed by four police cars, which made me think there was something serious going on; after pulling over for 20 more, it was obviously something big.
I approached Eastern and St. Rose, some of the police cars turned right on St. Rose and some continued up Eastern.
I had no idea where they were headed and there was nothing on the news. You would think that such a disturbance would warrant a media response.
I continued home not knowing where the police were headed.
Then there was a helicopter with a searchlight circling. From the place at which I was when I spotted it, I could not tell exactly where they were looking, but it could have been my neighborhood.
I continued home.
The elementary school parking lot was full of officers and police cars. No swat team van, though.
At this point, there was still no media.
Backing up, Saturday evening (the night before) I had a nightmare about someone breaking into my house.
I was a little scared when I saw the neighborhoods across the street from the elementary school, on the east side of the street were blocked off by police cars and caution tape.
My little mind starts over thinking the situation. Was the dream a vision? Should I turn back and go somewhere safe?
The postitives are that it didn’t happen in my neighborhood and the person who caused the ruckus was taken into custody.
The negatives, it seems like there are a lot of “incidents” like this one in Seven Hills, and it’s supposed to be in a “good” part of town.
The media this morning reports very little except there was an armed standoff near Seven Hills and Sunridge Heights. It’s very little coverage for the ruckus it caused.
