    GREAT WORK BY APD! I live few houses away from the crime scene; this is a nice quiet neighborhood (Historical Emery Park)was home that afternoon – ADP RESPONDED VERY FAST! GREAT! police canvased the neighborhood asking for witness accounts – I hope this was a one-time crime and not to expect more like situations. The neighbors are scared, now not knowing what else to expect. Since Councilman Ayala lives in the area, I hope he takes enough interest to call for a meeting with the APD and Emery Park neighbors to keep us informed regarding this issue.
