The Return of the Midnight Shooter

We had another visitation from the Midnight Shooter.

At 12:40 AM EST on Sunday, 10/20/2019, an unknown amateur firearms aficionado discharged approximately 8 shots from a 9mm autoloader, changed magazines, and discharged 5 more shots.  The exact location of the alleged perpetrator of this horrific unlawful discharge of a firearm within the city limits and outside of a facility specifically designed and duly licensed for such an activity is unknown at this time.  However, I would guess that said location is someplace North of Misty Way in Southeast Columbus, Ohio. 

This time the shots were somewhat muffled, so I suspect he was shooting into the ground.

I didn't call it in.  Why bother?  The Columbus PD has some kind of new listening device that detects gunfire, approximates the location, and sends that information to Command Central.

Ten minutes later the CPD ghetto bird arrives, and the stupid thing circles the area for 15 - 20 minutes before giving up and returning to base.  The helicopter makes more noise than the shooter, and is a lot more aggravating.

And no, the shooter wasn't caught.

Just another day in Machine Gun Alley, Columbus, Ohio.
