REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- If you fire a gun in east Redwood City next year, the police will know about it almost the moment you pull the trigger.City Council members voted unanimously Monday night to spend $25,000 on the nation's first field test of an urban gunshot location system, a high-tech web of microphones and data lines that can pinpoint the source of a gunshot within a few feet.Although a $5.5 million federal grant was approved last month to install a citywide system in Washington, D.C., Redwood City will become the first community to try a high-tech solution to the random gunfire that has terrified its eastern neighborhoods.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Floyd Shelton always had a pretty good idea there was something weird hidden in the gigantic Hughes Mining Barge at the Port of Redwood City.Mr. Shelton, executive director of the port, got his biggest clue one day when he found a heavy crane working on the dock over the heavily guarded barge. Puzzled that he hadn't been notified, he approached the workers. "This guy came walking up with his hand on his holster, saying, 'Can I help you, sir?' "Now, after 10 years of cloak-and-dagger secrecy about what's in the barge, the tantalizing secret is out: It's the Sea Shadow -- an awkward, hulking 560-ton ship that looks like a catamaran from hell, the U.S. Navy's seafaring version of the F-117 "stealth" fighter.
