So the other night, I was walking down a pretty deserted residential street at night, and I was coming to an intersection, and from the opposite side of the cross street this large group of guys all dressed in black with hoods on, are walking up towards me. They were walking next to each other in a horizontal line, filling up the street, and they were all dressed completely in black. I needed to get to that street and turn right because I was heading back to this little restaurant down on the right side of that street. So I quickened my pace, and didn't look at them. As I was approaching the cross street (and they were too) one of them called out to me, something like "hey man!" I just kept walking. I didn't turn my head or anything. My hands were in my pockets. Another one called out something like "dude, what's up?" or "dude, what's your problem?" I was kind of freaked out so I don't remember what they said word for word too much, but I know that at least a few of them exchanged yelling such things towards me. I didn't give them any incentive to pursue me, and I just kept walking ahead with my hands in my pockets (by this point I had gotten onto the cross street and was heading toward the restaurant. After a little while I looked back and they had continued up the street they had been walking up. They didn't turn onto the street with the restaurant. Was this dangerous? Could I have gotten hurt if I responded to them or behaved like I was afraid? Do you think it was a gang?
