I went outside to water the plants and as soon as I got out there, I heard what sounded like a gunshot. I was positive it wasn't in our alley (it's a dead end and it sounded a little further away than that). I heard yelling afterwards, but I couldn't understand what the guy was saying.
Man, I hope that was just something that sounds like a gunshot. I don't hear any sirens or anything. I feel totally safe here, but things get pretty rough just a few streets over. Ugh.
