    apt in the bay area was on o'keefe - and i was up a little bank in a two story - front door was sliding glass off the patio.

    when the automatic was going off, i was pinning the dogs to the floor to keep a low profile.  pinning four dogs isn't easy, btw, especially when they want to go SEE the excitement directly outside the entrance!  the slugs were on the sidewalk - but, fortunately for us, they weren't firing up - they were firing at someone in the next building.

    fortunately, too, they were terrible shooters... didn't hit anything.

    a few years back, a truck in front of this house ended up with bullet holes from a running battle.  fortunately, the folks who were the source have all moved now.  there are no more "crack houses" nearby - mostly families - working parents and young kids.  

    it's changing slowly... thankfully - and, our pd is very small and no chance of corruption.  they are very involved in making epa a really good place to live.  it takes a whole lot of effort, but they are doing it.

      now, there's a huge luxury hotel on university on the west side of 101 and that helped clear out part of the troubled neighborhood on the west side.
