A Frightening Yesterday

I was at work when someone mentioned there was something going on in my city. I said "I hope it isn't in my neighborhood" and felt my heart sink when they said it was right where I live. My autistic daughter was home by herself. I told my supervisor I had to leave as soon as possible but I was stuck until someone could give me a ride. My son called and said they had our road blocked off so he couldn't go home either. A police officer went to my house to do a welfare check on my daughter. I felt relieved she was okay and had locked the door, staying inside. Once I could leave work I couldn't get home because it was still blocked off. They did let parents go pick up their kids (also on lock down) but they couldn't return home. Waited with others down the street for about an hour and a half until they finally let us go home. They had caught the second guy. Some people had been there since 10 in the morning. Today the police were here again looking around. Gave the permission to look under my place because they found a fresh footprint and some change.

There was two of them. They caught one quickly and then the other one later in the afternoon. Both are in jail now.
