Quote from the Dispatch Article:
Three firefighters’ cars were hit by bullets, including one that was completely shot out. That truck might’ve stopped bullets from flying into neighboring homes behind the firehouse, Peters said.
Firefighter Gary Greiner, whose Chevrolet Silverado pickup was pierced by one bullet, said he’s still running what happened through his mind.
“It’s hard to process everything that you’re seeing, feeling, hearing when 15 seconds earlier, you were in a dead sleep and you wake up to a popping sound that’s very close and you know that it’s gunshots,” he said.
Neither Greiner nor Peters would go into details of what they saw from the firehouse’s second-floor windows, since as witnesses, they will be part of the police investigation.
The shootout reinforces that, even in normally quiet Clintonville, anything can happen, they said.
“It’s a dangerous job,” Peters said.“It can happen any time, anywhere.”
Comment: Coleman (in conjunction with Gene Harris) is leading this city down, down, down. There never used to be shootings like this on the north side, it was confined to the Linden Area, Cleveland Avenue or the Near East side. The Black Community has collapsed under the false hope and change of the false Messiah Barak Hussein Obama.
