day 10943: oblivious
Around 6 this evening, my coworker asked if I had heard a strange noise. I had my earphones on and my music playing and hadn't heard anything unusual. There's always construction noise and street noise around.
We brushed it aside and continued wrapping things up for the night.
Fifteen minutes later as we headed out for dinner, we stopped at a traffic light to let two bicycle cops ride by. We made a comment about how they get so little respect, and continued on our way.
I just found out that there had been a shooting. As many as ten shots fired, only half a block from my office.
