Excitement around the office this morning

A group of banditos was engaged in a gunfight with the Plano PD down the street from where I work. They chased them after they hijacked several cars and one of them with shotout windows went through our parking lot with police in persuit shotguns and assault rifles bazing. MANY helocopters and ground units from all over the county responded. Bullet casings are everywhere. I think one BG is dead and one officer shot.

Your vehicle didn't get hit, did it?

I got some shots of the vehicles with busted out windows and some fancy PD rides that look like they came from the set of a MIB movie...

Re: Excitement around the office this morning

Is Spanish the official language of Texas yet?

It sounds like these guys mean business, since they're described as being decked out in armor and packing some serious heat.

Yeah spanish is my second cussword language

The helos are still sweeping the area. The walls of my building rattle with their blade wash from time to time. I would NOT have wanted to be jacked by these guys.
