This is what I was able to gather from a few different sources (a neighbor who lives near the house in question, the news reporter trying to give her report to the camera, and a cop on the scene I talked to afterwards):
A group of Honduran immigrants were living in a house on Young Street. According to my neighbor they had parties pretty often, but were otherwise not a problem. Around 4am Sunday morning one of their parties fell apart as someone was stabbed then someone was shot. By the time the police arrived, four people had barricaded themselves in the house. None of them spoke any English so it was difficult to communicate with them. Without knowing who or how many people were in there, the police assumed it was a potential hostage situation and acted accordingly. Once they got the people out they swept the house and then started trying to figure out the particulars of the stabbing and shooting. It all ended around 11:30am but Young Street was closed until around 1-2pm. I wouldn’t exactly say this is the official word, but it’s what I was able to piece together.
I never knew we had a tank.
