Entertaining PR move, though they need to publicize it a lot
among people who may not read newspapers, and may not speak much English.
They know "very precisely" where the gunshot came from -
it was somebody right in front of 1234 5th street 45 minutes ago :-)
If they're still in the same place when the police get there,
and still waving guns in the air shooting, that can be useful.
Otherwise, nobody saw nothing....

I lost a high school classmate to random gunshots;
some kid was cleaning his gun in his garage and shot at a bird or something.
