Helicopters, Gun Shots, Burglaries, 3 Police Departments in one evening!

Lots of buzz last night about the helicopters hovering over PW & Sands Point.  Gun shots compelled me to call the PWPD, was told there were other calls/reports.  PWPD confirmed there was an active investigation in process in Sands Point.  Murray & Plandome a site of recovered stolen items.  NO WORD ON THE NEWS?  No word on Patch?  I think a commotion of those proportions deserve a  quick briefing.

I am shocked to see no coverage about this incident. I was one of a large group of people attending a concert at the UMC on Middleneck Road on Saturday night when, at approximately 10 PM, we were advised by the police that the area was in lockdown and directed to secure the building. Nobody was allowed in or out and we were surrounded by Port, Sands Point and Nassau County police on all sides. In addition to the helicopter, K-9 teams were patrolling the area and, eventually, police escorted people to their cars individually until the building was empty. It is ironic that this occurred the week that Port was declared one of the safest towns in NYS. It is appalling that no coverage has been given to this incident on Patch. As residents of Port, we are entitled to be informed of important events, especially those which can affect our safety and that of our children. As far as I know, the alleged perpetrators are still on the loose.

I hear ya!!! Around my house their was police cars (Nassau & PW), undercover, crime units..EVERYWHERE. I live in Harbor Homes and I have to say it was crazy. They were driving through the golf course, they were checking everyone's car and IDs. At one point this guy in this jeep stopped in the middle of the intersection and spoke to the cops. I don't know what he was saying, but he definitely knew something or saw something or knows someone but he was sooo nervous. He could not stop moving around and pacing, jumping up and down, you could tell from a distance that he was definitely consumed with what he knew/saw. I wish the police would let us know something.

It may have been a false alarm. We heard all of this going on close to our home, but my son did see at least one fireworks explosion. But it would of course be nice to know exactly what happened.

There was no way that this was a false alarm. Like I said the guy who stopped mid intersection was freaking out. I'm telling you they were all over the place. It was pretty scary.
