i heard  a series of loud bangs (also out of my window) near that location...... but couldn't tell whether gunshots or fireworks ......

it wasn't a car backfiring, because these bangs were   just after someone with one of those ridiculous racing-exhaust cars drove past popping and banging....

It was fireworks -- I saw them from my apartment by Travers Park. It was definitely shocking --- so over this summer.

Andy thank you for clarifying.  My mother lives a block away and she thought it was gun shots.  She was very nervous but good thing it was a false alarm.
