Possible gun shots in the 500 Block of North Soledad. There was one reporting party and I heard them in the distance.

We heard the same thing and were wondering about gunfire, until the EXTREMELY loud backfiring car turned down Cota St. My dad's old classic Porsche used to backfire, and we always knew when he was home. But yesterday's backfire noises were the loudest I've ever heard. Don't worry - it was definitely not gunfire!

In light of the tragedies last week, any gun-like sounds should be taken seriously and reported. I'd rather be laughed at for reporting fireworks or car backfires than silent and shot.

Santa Barbara needs Shotspotter. It's a system of super accurate microphones that can discern fireworks from real gunshots. It can pin point gunshots to within 100 feet and automatically send the police to the spot in seconds.

I can tell the difference I have some neighbors that do both so it's easy to tell..Last nights were to far away though when I hear those calls I think they are important to post.

Heard 10-12 loud and clear, but, I'm operating on the assumption they were fireworks.

That's what they want us to think it was fireworks.

Thought I'd post in case anyone else heard them.
