No Bullet Holes

The latest update on yesterday's "excitement" didn't really tell me much more than I already knew. Apparently a guy jacked a taxi at gunpoint, led police on a merry chase down Capital Blvd and then hit a delivery van. In the ensuing scuffle, the perpetrator was shot twice by one of Raleigh's finest and another unit responding to the call got into a wreck on the way to the scene. The first incident took place (best I could tell) on the opposite corner of the block where my office is.

Funny, I don't recall hearing any gunfire. You'd think I'd have noticed something like that.Stumble Upon Toolbar

Glad you posted about that, I heard the breaking news on the radio while I was driving and meant to see what happened when I got home (I was working in Durham, far from the carnage).

You're my local news source. You can quote me next time you need press credentials.

Incidentally, Raleigh's new police chief moved from my hometown just before I did.
