My girlfriend and I were watching tv and we heard several pops. She asked me if I thought it was gunfire. It was, but I wasn't going to tell her that. Gunfire is very common in my city. We just kept watching tv until the cops and fire department showed up on her street. Turns out there was a shooting a few doors down. Caused so much excitement that a few neighbors stepped outside and I went to the grocery store. It's amazing what you can get used to and how little you care about what happens outside of your front door.
