Okay, so I hear via my college's unofficial forum that a Deputy was shot maybe three streets down from the apartment I am at and the person is still at large. Well, I turn to the closest thing we have for a news channel. Nothing, nothing, weather, nothing, nothing. Finally at the very END there was a 15 SECOND blurb that said shots were still being fired in what is being called a "standoff," and "we will sign on again tomorrow morning for the news at 5am." ARG! I want to know what the heck is going on. I want to know if this person tries to come toward my apartment.
Now I just have to wait until tomorrow. Great. The only other news we get is on the local channel and it is taped at 3:30 in the afternoon. Okay, there is live news in the morning, but still. Humph.
Sorry for the vent.
Oh, I just got an update from a friend with a scanner. They've called in police from a neighboring county (one is a friend of mine). The deputy was shot twice but nothing fatal has been called in. I really hope he will be okay. They are beginning to close off more roads.
