I have no idea what's going on in Lakewood but we have had shots fired two nights in a row last night over 20 shots were fired by the 8000 block of Oak Knoll and the night before last it was 12 shots fired at the end of the 8000 block of Linda Vista. The problem is when you call the police they want your home address or they won't come. I went through this a couple of times and just stopped calling them because I don't want you to show up in my house to show a shooter where I live it doesn't even make sense and then why won't you show up if I won't give you my address the shots were still fired somebody could still be laying dead in an alley somewhere I'm confused.
