There have been ambulances, fire trucks, cops of all descriptions going past my house at different intervals for several hours. It is 7:30 now.
Maybe it is drug crack down night, or gang crack down night. That would be wonderful.

RIPLEY, TN -
(WMC-TV)- Lauderdale County investigators are working to contain what they are calling a large, gang-related fight in the Gay Street community in Ripley, Tennessee.

Police have blocked off the entire area and are searching every vehicle.

Tipton County Sheriff Pancho Chumley is on the scene assisting, as well as Tipton County SWAT. Additional police from Henning, Halls, and Gates are being called in, in addition to Ripley police and Lauderdale County Sheriff's deputies.

Shots have been reportedly fired in the air, but no one has been hit.

Action News 5 has a crew en route to the scene and will bring you much more on this developing story.

I have also heard all the sirens going off almost all this evening. They started about 2 o'clock. I saw some police cars with there lighs on and sirens on going down into Lackey Lane. Wonder what is going on down in the rich neighbor-hood.
It's about time they start busting these gangs and drug dealers and put them away. Don't let them right back out so they can go right back to doing the some thing over and over and over again and again.
Someone needs to do something. PLEASE. And the sooner the better

Hope this isn't a preview of what's to come this spring/summer. When heat is in the air attitudes will flare!

At least someone thought far enough ahead to bring in Sheriff Chumley, he is competent enough to handle a situation like this. No one in Ripley or Lauderdale County seems to be able to handle these type problems!

Good thing they called in other countys. Our law enforcement here in this county lets the drug dealers and gangs run this county. Don't guess they will like others coming in and doing something about the problem they can't handle themselves. Hope they take them all down. The good, the bad and the ugly. And yes there are some ugly. They know who they are.

Local Law Enforcement doesn't like outsiders, it causes problems with their kickbacks! I can assure you Sheriff Chumley and his Dept frown on any illegal activity, especially unethical Police conduct!
