I would say this warrented six cruisers....

From what I heard over the scanner, there were three people at least two were pistol whipped, one was pregnant. The pregnant one went out a second story window. I still wish they could explain why that particular home was targeted. I'm pretty sure there wasn't a conversation over coffee in Dorchester, about attacking a house on Winter St. in Maine. It does help to be aware of whats happening and why in your neighborhood......
