    My wife and I heard 3 loud pops at 9:15pm as well. Then again this morning around 5am. We live near 30th and Findlay. Wondering if any of this is related.

      We live close and heard them at the same time. Looked like the cops were searching the whole area after the shots at 4:45 this morning.

      Kyle I heard 5 or 6 shots around 5am today too. 23rd and Findlay. Sounded like they came from east side of Delridge.

    Any update on this? It’s right by my house and a spot I walk at night. This has me concerned.
