I just heard 3 screams, it sounded like someone was in pain on my street and I'm really paranoid, what could it be? help me, ;~;?

I heard 3 screams, they sounded really disturbing, to me it sounded like someone being stabbed now I'm quite scared.. our village kinda has a history for crimes like this. but i'm also thinking it could be some stupid kid trying to scare people.. what do you think it could be? ;W; am I just being paranoid?
Update: it's sadly really dark outside so I can't see anything, and i'm too scared to step out of the house.. ;W;
