Is this the same event where firefighters responding to a medical call were turned away by two men with a shotgun? I only ask because it seems to be in the same area.

No, this is not the same incident, though it is in the same area. That is a moderately high crime area in the city.

Ok thanks. The location made me curious. I take it that area is highly populated with Hispanics then?

I believe that section of town is referred to as the "knife and gun club". I don't go there at all, especially after dark. Puts a black eye on an otherwise pretty safe city....

That area is considered South East and there is a lot of gang problems in that area. It's a mixture of all different races. Everything past Academy and Pikes Peak is Considered North.

...and we're wandering toward places that we do not need to go. Closing.
