A neighbor told me they called the police approx 1am this morning to report numerous gunshots, likely from the west side of 101. They followed up today w/email to the police asking what had happened, because it sounded so close but they didn't hear any ambulances. Apparently, someone was *duck hunting* at 1am, but their phone call helped alert park rangers, who were ensuring that the hunters were in compliance w/laws. What? Does that even make sense? I can't find anything indicating it's legal to hunt at that time in the Bay Area.
Maybe the shots came from the east side, but in the creek and traveled up the creek in such a way as to sound very close by? Did anyone else hear these shots? Does the police dept's explanation sound like it's only a partial explanation?
