    I live in a middle class neighborhood but there are some crimes that happen frequently (drug dealing, theft, dog fights, etc).

    Right now there was 4 police cars, 2 undercover cars, 1 crime scene SUV, 2 firetrucks, and 1 ambulance out front.

    All I know is that the police cars all arrive VERY fast and they had their guns drawn and kicked down the door.

    I was outside talking to another neighbor and supposedly, the woman that lives in the house shot themselves in the foot and called the police themselves.

    Is this typical procedure to have that many police, firemen, and ambulances there and a crime scene vehicle?

    IMO there has to be more than accidentally shooting yourself in the foot.

    usually when police receive calls for gunshots.....they like to arrive in full force....


    as for fire and ambulance, well there must not have been to much going on because they typically dont go into a "hot zone"

    I'm in Georgia.

    The Ambulances and firetrucks arrived about 4 minutes after they kicked in the door.

    You should go outside open carrying.

    Guessing a relatively slow night for the cops coupled with some crossed wires in the information department. Whether the person who called wasn't clear enough to the dispatcher, or the dispatcher got his/her codes wrong sounds unclear.

    If I went out there open carrying, it probably would have been interesting but I didn't the balls to do that.

    I do not have any law enforcement back ground but maybe 15 people for someone shooting themselves in the foot?

    It doesn't matter if the shooting was self inflicted, the cops have no way of knowing that when they get the call. It doesn't matter if they were told that by the caller, people lie. Therefore it is treated like an active shooter type situation.

    To break down the response:
    -Six cop cars showing up usually mean just 6 cops, probably the minimum I would want if I had to arrest or otherwise deal with a violent suspect.
    -The ambulance is for the actual gunshot wound.
    -The CSI SUV is to determine if the gunshot was, in fact, self-inflicted.
    -Not sure about the fire truck, unless it was providing more rescue personnel.

    Around here we are Firefighter/EMT certified when manning the apparatus in the fire station. 2 people in ambulance and full crew of 5 in fire engine. They are to provide life safety coverage---for a nerve gas exposure etc.
