"There was a very heavy police presence in the Red Car Property canyon and the surrounding neighborhoods early this morning (2-4 a.m.). There were many police cars parked on Rosebud and 2 helicopters flying around the neighborhood which they eventually pulled back and used only one helicopter. I called the air squad division and was told they were looking for someone who had stolen a car and came into the neighborhood with a gun. She could not tell me whether this person was caught only that I would have to call the Northeast division to find out."
Neighbors on Riverside Place and Lake View lost sleep too.
