Drama on Glautenstrasse.

I live opposite a cul-de-sac and for the last two hours or so there have been dozens of armed police sealing the street.
Aparently, it's a family drama, what I heard from a by stander is that the woman above him had kicked her husband (and father of the two children) out and moved a lover in, the the ex came back with a gun.
The ambulence left empty, and most of the police are gone now, so I think it must of worked out OK.
Still, very exciting (and noisy) for a sunday lunch time.
If anyone sees what happened on telezuri (car parked outside) or anywhere else, let me know the detais, I'm noisy.

Nosy you mean. So the woman and children came close to being blown off by a shotgun - exciting indeed, hmmmm

Re: Drama on Glautenstrasse.

Yes, nosy.
I didn't write anything until the ambulance left empty. If there was a disaster, that would've been awful.
But, thanks for the detail, shotgun.

As this reports shows

a fairly harmless affair. The 4 chaps however may face some trouble but nothing serious

Re: Drama on Glautenstrasse.

Thanks, So no women involved at all.
The neighbour said Macedonian family and it was Swiss men. Well, the neighbour was swiss......
Mind you, the police did stop my neighbour because he was jogging down past the house, he was without glasses and with earbuds in.... he didn't hear or see anything until a policeman with a gun was in front of him shouting, he also did not have ID on him, as he was jogging, but the police let him go because the accent was different.

There were police with guns waiting for 2 hours..... The cars were in the street all that time. Maybe there was someone else still in the house? I guess they didn't know it was only an airgun either.

They apparently simply wanted to be sure

Re: Drama on Glautenstrasse.

Yes, I would have expected Nando the police dog to find the spirit of the wolves in the forest. He's a distant relative after all. Translation programs, you have to love them, otherwise you'd cry.
