Nope, no sirens. Eh, probably nothing.

Is it a firecracker kind of neighborhood?

If you're pretty sure it's gunshots, it might be worth a call into the police department just so they can drive by and take a looksee.

Sometimes in the summer there are firecrackers...
I wasn't really sure enough to call the police. There were no sirens after so it was probably something else.

Car backfiring?

I was walking home late in the evening last year and I heard a car backfiring. Then a rather scared group of young men ran past me very fast and it occurred to me that I haven't heard a car backfire outside of a movie. I quickened my pace walking home.

I have. Not often, but I have. Sound is surprisingly similar to a gunshot (which I've also heard in a neighborhood close to where we lived).

I must say that I can't really remember ever hearing one, but the sound of a (probable) gunshot did sound just like it.

I've never actually heard a car backfire... I think it's one of those things that only happens in movies...

I've heard it happen. Frikkin' LOUD.

Though I don't think it's possible to have two backfires in rapid succession.

Is it ever! I was in a car when it backfired and it scared the Jeebus outta me. o.O

You alright? Is it exciting? Are you hiding in the basement holding on to the cats?

I'm alright. It's frightfully dull. I heard the 2 bangs and nothing since. Not even any sirens, so it was probably something else.
One cat is asleep on the back of the couch beside me and the other is curled up on my lap. They didn't care.

Yeah!

P.S. Glad that it was nothing though. We like you hellpeople all in one piece and not riddled with holes and such.

Yikes! I'm sending safe, peaceful thoughts.

Eh. Must have been nothing because there were never even any sirens...

There probably wouldn't be any sirens even if it was gunfire. We've called in shots heard here, and they send a car to drive through the neighborhood. Not a lights-and-sirens response. Usually it comes as "unable to locate" in the end anyway.

Hopefully it was nothing.

I used to live in Brooklyn Park/Brooklyn Center...so we did hear gunshots from time to time. We also heard what we thought were gun shots, but it was just tires blowing when cars were lit on fire.

*fabulous* use of the word 'just' in that sentence. :-)
