    Yikes. I ran by here around 12:30pm and wondered what was going on. There were 20 police/emergency vehicles and another 20 tv crew vans. The tv media absolutely loves this kind of stuff.

    I rode by on bike around 11:20, the police were handcuffing a guy (shooter?) and the TV crews were just arriving. People I talked to said they’d heard 6 or 7 shots. Bystanders had been walking their dogs at the dog park. I’d say the news media has reason to love this stuff. Scary, by any measure.

    Yup. I was several blocks away. Just heard a bunch of really loud pop-pop-pops. Pretty crazy stuff. Living in downtown Columbus, you don’t expect to hear that during the day. So I just assumed it was something besides gunshots and ignored it the rest of the day. Crazy.

    So I take it you do expect to hear a series of loud gun pops at night?
