Today's word on journalism

"I've always been all over the lot in my writing. Except for poetry -- even though they say all the old-time sportswriters use plenty of it. Maybe it's just part of what we do."

Police get call of possible gunshot and scream, but fireworks likely to blame

By Devin Felix

April 23, 2007 | A Logan resident called police Sunday night after hearing a loud noise she thought was a gunshot, followed by a high-pitched scream, but police determined the noise was likely caused by fireworks.

Logan City Police Department Officers Chris Kleven and Cordell Hoth responded to the call at 387 S. 1200 West St. at about 11 p.m. and searched the area, public information officer Louise Speth said. The officers questioned a man in the area, who said he had also heard the noise and seen a flash of light.

Police also questioned a third person in the area who had heard the noise and suggested that someone had probably lighted a bottle rocket. Neither person thought the event was serious enough to call police. Speth said the scream was likely from someone who was startled by the loud noise. No evidence of guns or fireworks was found and the case was declared inactive because of a lack of evidence.
