This past Sunday, while on evening shift, the Sergeant gave us an early leave to go for wings and a brew.
The four of us had a round of each and then headed off home.
Unbeknownst to us, three blocks away was a shooting just as we were leaving.
The suspect vehicle was described as a black Dodge Ram.
One of my shift-mates was driving a dark blue Chevy Silverado.
The helicopter picked him up on camera and sicced the night shift crew on him. He was followed all the way accross the city to a few blocks away from home where he was taken down in a high-risk traffic stop. Guns drawn, keys out the window, proned-out on the ground, whirlybird circling the entire time.
It was all the talk at Monday shift briefing. He didn't think it was as funny as we did.
