    I was at carpenito bros at noon, an hour before this went down, there was a police cordon on the lot behind the business, the cops had their long guns out and dogs searching, the employees at carpenito bros were blocking the driveways keeping new customers from coming in, and there were three cop cars at the motel across the street_
