I fell asleep with the lights on and woke up to yelling around three.

When I heard nothing else I went back to bed.

I figured nothing bad has really happened here so it's probably unlikely.

I told myself maybe it's all in my head.

Then when I finally woke I decided to check the news instead.

There were shots fired inside a house.

The screams happened before three when I was fast asleep in bed.

The noises that usually wake me at night is the rattling made by a mouse.

The yelling I heard wasn't from a woman, but from a man.

So utterly terrifying I hope I never have to hear that again.
