Just spoke with the Commissioner. He said the PD received two calls the night of June 13. One was for gunshots heard, the other was for fire fireworks. He said they investigated by the footbridge near Demott and the teenagers they questioned did not have fireworks or a gun. He did say that either scenario is possible. Hope that helps.

Very scary. If it took place minutes earlier or later it would have been in a 13 year old's head! Thank God someone was watching over that house
