The bright blue lights.
We chased him for five blocks. Up three flights of stairs and down a construction chute. He disappeared past a corner to his right immediately after we landed.
'Where did he go?' My partner asked trying to steady his breathing as we both stared at a 10 ft brick wall.
'No way he jumped that high.'
'Did you get any other description, past a hoodie and blue jeans?'
'Yeah, the lady at the store said... damn it!' He exclaimed patting himself down.
'What now?' I asked walking closer, examining the wall.
'I lost my notepad during the chase.'
At the time we thought we were just chasing another criminal, that could somehow climb a 10 ft wall in a matter of seconds, unlikely but plausible.
Little did we know, this was directly connected to the event we all witnessed over the city two nights ago; the bright blue lights.
