Update on Shooting in Chico

It's amazing what you don't know. Like yesterday. We're enjoying a sunny afternoon at the Chico Mall. We hear the sirens and watch three law enforcement cars fly by on the nearby street. Yesterday I mentioned this. Here's an updated news article (with photos)and you will read that bullets were flying within a very short distance of where we stood. Unless we had seen the police cars (and later the police helicopter) we would have been completely unaware of a drug deal gone bad in broad daylight. We knew something had gone down for we had seen the cars and helicopter. I forgot to mention yesterday that as we stood there in the parking lot a vehicle pulled up beside us and a fellow with a very expensive camera pulled up and jumped out of his car. One of our friends is a camera buff and seeing the camera commented on it. When we saw him head down the street in the direction of the police cars we knew he was looking to photograph the action. I'm betting the two photos that accompany the news article were taken with his camera.

I'm glad that everything worked out so well. Sometimes ignorance is bliss right? If you knew what was going on around you fear and panic may have ensued.
Have a great time on your trip!
