    Whoa. Too close for comfort. Happy to hear nobody got hurt? Looking forward to more information.

    We heard a variety of distant fireworks after dark but nothing that sounded like gunfire. What time was it reported?

      The report is time-stamped 12:16 am. I would guess that refers to the initial report as I don’t think employees would be arriving at the bank at that hour.

      The fireworks were loud. We heard them here in the 3200 block of California) and the sounded close. Our security cameras logged the sounds at 11:46pm.

    Summit Atlas High School, on the corner of 35th & Roxbury, has 2 shattered windows on the 35th side of the building right at the corner with Roxbury. Each of the shattered windows has a distinct small round hole. Bullets? BB guns? We reported this to the non-emergency SPD line on Saturday when the holes & shattered windows were noticed by us.

    I bank there, they are absolutely incredible people who work at that branch.  What a terrifying thing to go through – I hope the perps are caught (go SPD!) or maybe FBI since it’s bank-related.

    I heard both first what sounded like gun fire then I heard a series of pops that sounded more like fireworks.  I am at 46th and Hinds.   I am glad no one was hurt.

    People are monsters. This is just stupid behavior.
