Town Square

Does anyone know what the small explosion or gun shots were from last night?

It was probably between ten and eleven last (Sunday) night and there was a very loud pop and then the sky in the direction in came from lit up orange. We then heard sirens. It happened in the direction of harvest park middle school. We were at the Safeway shopping center on Santa Rita when we heard and saw it. Anyone know what happened?

I too heard the noise and we are close to the freeway @ Santa Rita and West Las Positas. I had thought it may have come from Camp Parks but it was sounding like it came from the South. I know nothing but I can confirm the sound and time.

Hey steven, this neighbor you speak of - can other people see him, or just you?

Likely some early fireworks as gadstone said. In my neighgborhood, I always hear strange booms and bombs around the 4th every year.

I was told by police they got a report that bottle rockets were being shot off around 8:55 Sunday.
