‘Stark reminder’: Gun battle breaks out in front of 3AW reporter’s home

A gun battle has broken out in front of a 3AW reporter’s US home.

Kirk Clyatt was sleeping when at least 16 shots rang out.

It was the result of a party brawl that had started two blocks away.

One person was injured.

The wave of fire outside Kirk’s home was as a stark reminder of America’s gun problem, coming just hours after a day of record-breaking March For Our Lives protests calling for gun control.

“Incidents like this are so common that there was no mention of the person who was shot in this gun battle in local news this morning,” he told Ross and John.
