I have a question. I am not sure if the story given was real or not. A member of the mom's club posted a scary situation to the chatroom. A friend's colleague re-capped what happened to him on his way to their office Saturday morning. He was driving through the Windermere Resident Project that is unoccupied. As he approached a stop sign, near the new elementary school along Stoneleaf, a 4-door sedan was on the side of the road with it's hood up. Out from behind the hood came a man wearing a jacket/sweatshirt bearing a rifle and another man was running to get to the driver's door. He flew the vehicle into reverse and hit the guy running to get to his driver's door and the man with the rifle fired a few rounds. He drove to the nearest Safeway about 1/2 mile away. The police met the man at the Safeway and he and the police officers (approximately 6 police cars) drove back to the scene. The police officers found rifle shells (he thinks a 235 caliber or
greater...cop killer bullets that can penetrate a vest). He had heard from another mom that something similar had happened and that police think these may be "gang initiation" type activities.
My question is has anyone heard of such activities happening around Dublin/Pleasanton?
