so Friday night I was in Merced CA at my buddy's house helping him plant his fields. At around midnight we here 7 gunshots that were about 300 yrds. Away from my buddies farm guy reloaded and emptied another mag. We go outside with our guns to make sure the guy wasnt running through my buddies property and sure enough he is so we both dialed 911 and pretty much got blown off so my buddy calls again while I keep an eye on the guy running and they take his info down and tell him an officer will be there shortly. We stand outside and listen to the sirens cause there's a giant concrete wall separating where the shooting took place and my buddies farm. We see the chopper searching in the opposite direction and no cops coming our way. So my buddy called again to tell them we saw the shooter and which direction he was headed. The operator basicly yells at my friend and tells him the the police know how to do there job and to not call back. So the cops just let the guy go. I'm amazed at the incompetence of Merced pd. My friend is going today to dial a complaint and when I go back down there Tuesday im filing one as well. Morons let a murder go. Just to bad he wasn't in range of my shotgun or I would solved the case for em. and the cops never showed up to question us.
