    of the 20 block house by house search - he managed to get just far enough outside the line while they were setting up in the wee hours.  

    Nobody noticed, because nobody was allowed outside all day.  

    Once they lifted the lock down and people went outside, that's when the neighbor & the homeowner of the boat called 911.  

    I'm thinking they wrapped up before dark on purpose, to either draw him out or get more eyes out there, in case he HAD managed to get past the perimeter.  They knew he was on foot, they THOUGHT he might have been wounded, guess they didn't know how badly he might or might not be hit and set up a standard 20 block perimeter around the gun fight area from last night?  If they had expanded it to 22 blocks, they would have found him, if they were searching houses and yards - but PD said they were mostly knocking on doors and questioning people, only searching houses where people had either not been home or weren't sure if crawl spaces were secure and whatnot?  

    If they hadn't lifted the lockout, he might have died in the boat overnight.  

    I'm glad they got him alive.  No martyr for the cause, whatever it is / was.
