The gunfire stopped for a moment, and I heard a crackling sound. It was coming from the vicinity of the shooter, and it was followed by a crackly voice.
"All units, respond to a shooting in progress, on the corner of 42nd and Prospecter, over."
The shooter, responded.
"Officer Harris responding to shooting in progress. I am in the vicinity and will call for backup if necessary. Over."
Another crackle. "That is fine. Dispatch out."
The shooter/cop addressed me now. "Nice try Jimmy. Okay, we'll do this the hard way."
I heard the unmistakable cocking of a double-barreled shotgun. Oh, ****.
