We were enjoying an evening with friends on our deck, when a policeman stuck his head through the shrubs and told us to go inside. Apparently there was an "issue involving guns" on the street behind us. I started having visions of drugs, gangs, etc...but it turns out it was an elderly gentleman who had messed up his medications and was having hallucinations. He had a gun and refused to surrender it and himself to the police. It turns out it was one of the houses right behind us. Our backyard was used as a cut through so the SWAT team could surround the house. Here you can see several SWAT team members cutting through our yard. We also saw two snipers walk down our street! It was quite the ordeal for our quiet little neighborhood! Thankfully, everything turned out just fine - no shots were fired and the man surrendered around midnight.
