TABLE ROCK-A neighbor said she had just let her dog out about 6:30 a.m. She had one light on in the kitchen when the explosion sounds went off. She doesn't know if it was gunfire or not, but the house at 410 State Street in Table Rock was surrounded by a Nebraska State Patrol Special Operations Unit or SWAT team, plus the Pawnee County Sheriff's Department. She heard the loud sounds and grabbed her dog and got him back in the house and hit the floor.
