(Wallyhood welcomes its newest writer to our fold, Nicholas Kato.)
What do we do when a reader reports gunshots in lower Wallingford? Gumshoe, of course.
After hearing reports there was a man seen with a rifle on December 2nd at 34th and Burke, I walked the block last Friday to investigate. What I found was surprising, to say the least. Two spent 10-gauge shotgun shells lay on the sidewalk adjacent to the old Avtech building. Nothing seemed damaged, and thankfully there have been no reports of injuries.
Besides the expended ammo, the only other thing that seemed out of place was the derelict house that stands, or rather, leans, just to the north of 34th and Burke.
Wallyhood reader Tracy H. provided the following information from Avtech:
Neighbors are encouraged to continue to report suspicious activity to the police. Meanwhile, discharging firearms on or by the Avtech property is still not allowed. Stay safe, folks.
