San Diego Police Return to University Heights

While walking this morning, my wife and I detoured to Adams and Mississippi to see what was up with all the police vehicles. Sharped-eyed Annie spotted a cop car roll through the stop sign at Mission, and we decided to follow.

The Featured Image and companions give glimpse of the activity. We went elsewhere in our neighborhood of University Heights before playing public peeping-toms with the many other onlookers. Police tape was up when we arrived, and going East—closer to Arizona—officers could be seen holding assault rifles pointed in safe directions. Whatever had their attention, ended. Firearms were put away, circling helicopter flew off, and the yellow tape came down.

I should have asked one of the men in blue why all the ruckus. Another civilian said that officers tried to serve a warrant. The know-nothings on Nextdoor claim a hostage situation transpired. Oh yeah? Well, it resolved quickly—nothing like the long standoff that occurred, ironically, on this date last year; what a coincidence.
