excitment! (:

8 Jun

I HAD A BEYOND EXCITING WEEKEND!

It started on Friday, and I just had my friend Lizzy sleepover since I couldn’t leave the house. We watched movies, ate, and had a campfire with my dad and Jenny. It was pretty coooool(:

But Saturday is when all the excitement went down! I woke up to a call from my dad saying “Whatever you do, don’t let Sam leave the house right now.”

This, of course, freaked me out beyond belief so I started panicking and asking what was going on. All he told me was that there was a bunch of cops outside with guns. MORE PANIC!

So, Sam stayed asleep and me and Lizzy were just freaking out in the house. Then a knock came on the door, and it was a Wauwatosa policeman. I remember his words exactly:

“Maam, you need to stay in your house, because there is a man in the building across from you with a loaded weapon. In order to keep you safe, we have SWAT teams positioned in various places all over the complex. If anything further occurs, you need to leave.”

WHAT?!

So we just waited, and watched. Turns out, that Wauwatosa, Cudahy, Oak Creek, South Milwaukee, Milwaukee, West Milwaukee, Greendale, Greefield, and Glendale and all sent their police forces to help us out.

We ended up being held in our apartment building until about 11 AM.

Turns out, that our neighbor, Andre, had shot at his girlfriend’s van 5 times, and continued to shoot off shots at various times throughout the morning. He then barricaded himself in his apartment and had a standoff with all those policemen. Smart, eh?
