I have been visiting my parents since Thursday night and I’m not getting home until tomorrow but I just checked my email and I had a few messages about something crazy that went down in the wee hours of the morning on Huron Street. My friend sent me some deets:

Something really strange happened on Huron Street early Sunday (7/20) morning. Wondering if you’ve heard about this?

A neighbor I spoke to this morning who lives in the Belvedere luxury apartment said he heard about 10 shots fired early Sunday morning! He said the police were just responding to a 911 call when a dog ran out without a leash.

My husband totally saw a white sheet covering something with a brown tail sticking out. Someone made an effort to clean the sidewalk with bleach yesterday, but there is still a lot of blood and police tape on Huron Street on the sidewalk just past the south-east corner of Huron and Manhattan Ave.

I was Googling to find news about it and there are some interesting comments in this person’s twitter blog that suggest they were actually chasing someone – sounds more like a drug bust to me. I know that there was this young couple walking a brown pitbull and now wonder if actually someone in their house was getting arrested when this all happened. Their shades were closed this morning and I didn’t see the guy walking the dog with the girl to the B61 bus stop as usual. Would be very surprised if I see them with the dog – have a feeling it might have been them.
