Apartment Life #117

This is a new weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that go on in and around my apartment complex in the past 20 years that we've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 20 years here in a weekly blog post.

The other day Ken and I heard a lot of yelling going on across the street but we didn't see anyone. So we waited to see what would happen and about 15 minutes later 2 police cars parked across the street. The police got out and went into the courtyard over there and we could hear a lot of loud yelling.

A few minutes later 2 people follow the police back out to their cars and the two people are standing in front of the police car in the back. The police had the guy in handcuffs for a few minutes and then took them off and they went back in their courtyard and the police left. I think it was just an argument between some of the people that live over there but I'm not sure. I took the pictures from my bedroom window. 


On Friday night At 11:55pm I started hearing shouting and arguing outside my bedroom window. That went on for about 15-20 minutes, I think there was a big party at one of the apartments across the street. Then at 12:15pm 7-10 gunshots right outside our bedroom window in the street. We both got up in time to see two people shooting at each other. One guy was in a car speeding off while another guy was standing in the street shooting at the car. The car drove off really fast and then 12-15 people came running from the courtyards across the street and got into about 7 different cars and sped away really fast. Another guy was standing in the street and a gun fell out of his hand and into the street but he picked it up and got in a car and left. At 12:19pm we saw the first police car drive by but by that time everyone was gone. 2 more police cars showed up and drove around my street and in the back alley across the street but after about 15 minutes they took off because no one was outside. At 1am people who live around here started coming back and parking on the street and going back to apartments across the street . I don't know if anyone in the first car that sped off got shot or not but they never came back. That was a close one, those shots took place on the street right outside my bedroom window. 

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
