Female apartment dweller in Beaverton or Portland, on of those lovely places, and I don't have all the details.
Neighbors in the apartment below were having a Domestic, and at some point the male fires a pistol through the ceiling, while said female friend of my kids is in her apartment. Supposedly right through where she normally sits. She calls the cops, cops blow her off and supposedly tell her since she wasn't injured, they can't do anything about it. Ceiling pop neighbor is angry about the Man being brought into his life, whereupon he threatens to shoot said female and "watch her bleed out". Said female tries to go above cops head and speaks to a "superintendent" at the station, who also blows her off.
None of my business, MYOB, etc. Said female is too scared to go back to her apartment and the site manager won't break her lease or take action against ceiling pop man. I don't see my kid becoming even more involved unless the friend stays at her apartment and ceiling pop man shows up, whereupon clarity would ensue.

Any realistic options?
Grammar tips?

She could talk to her local legal aid office about getting some help breaking her lease, since the neighbor clearly put her in danger and the landlord won't do anything about it.  He was probably in violation of a local ordinance about discharging a firearm within city limits, as well as Unlawful Use of a Weapon, which is a felony that does not require her to be injured.  She could try and talk to someone higher in the food chain at the PD about why he wasn't charged with that, but I don't know if that would get her anywhere.  Best bet is to get her out of the apartment.

IDK if they actually showed up. But. Certainly no action was taken and the kid is too scared to go home.

The apartment had to be Portland. Portland PD would only have responded if someone was hurt or they had a cruiser in the neighborhood.

 Beaverton PD or Washington County Sherriff would have responded appropriately and quickly.
