Well, it turns out that during the time we were discussing the merits of industrially made pancakes, the police were shooting someone in the parking lot of the restaurant I wanted to go. Two police patrols pulled over someone and thought he had a gun. So they opened fire and hit him twice. Usually when police open fire, the target dies. In this case we either they were not good shots or the race of the driver played a role (he is white). In any case, the victim is alive and in stable condition.
They did not find a gun.
