The Slice

Everybody look, what’s going down?

The loud bang outside late yesterday afternoon might have been a car backfiring.

Or maybe a transformer blowing.

Then it happened again. And again.

By the time I went out to have a look-see, all sorts of neighbors were already outside looking for an answer.

Turned out it had, in fact, been a pickup backfiring. The truck was pulled over down the road, with its hood up.

 One neighbor said it had sounded like gun shots. Another agreed.

Good to know I live on a street where people will go out and investigate when the shooting starts.
