I'm getting better at telling apart gunshots (common) and fireworks (way more common) in my neighborhood. So when I heard three shots out my window just now, I was pretty certain they weren't fireworks. But then I heard the same pattern of three again, and then again, and I grudgingly admitted that no one was likely to be shooting like that.

It turns out I was half-right. A police announcement, according to a few local news blogs:

Please Note: On Thursday, December 18, 2008 testing of the gunshot recognition/locator system known as "shotspotter" will take place in the Mission District. It is anticipated to occur at approximately 9:00 PM and will be occurring at various locations. The testing will occur in the areas of 18th St & Mission, 22nd St. & Valencia, 23rd St and Folsom, and 18th St and Bryant.

18th and Bryant is a block from here. I wonder if this system will help anything.
