Swat team in town!

Boy, did we have an exciting afternoon on my road! About 1:00 pm, I heard the sirens of an ambulance go down our road. Now this is not a normal occurrence on the road I live on. Not long after, police cars (marked and unmarked) started going down the road. After a sheriff's car went down with lights flashing, I decided I was going to find out what was going on.
I got in my car and headed towards the ruckus. Less than a mile down the road there were police cars on the side of the road. That's when I noticed the SWAT team's car.
My sister lives at the end of the road and there was an officer standing near her driveway. I asked him what was going on and he told me they were looking for a suspect that was possibly armed. I called my sister and mother telling them to make sure their doors were locked.
When I passed my mother's house, I noticed that her door was still open. I went in to lock it for her and guess what she said? "The storm door was locked." What????? The storm door can be jerked open if someone wanted in bad enough!!!
Anyway, the fugitive got away, but they know who they are looking for. Luckily no one was hurt.This was too much excitement for me!
Hope you had a great day!
