Everman, Texas – Location On Friday, three people were taken into custody after the Everman Police Department received information regarding a possible threat that could have been imminent during the Everman High School Homecoming Game.
According to the Everman Police Department, they have received information about a person who was currently on their way to the game with the intention of utilizing a firearm that he had obtained earlier Friday from a Deputy with the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office. This person was said to be planning to bring the firearm with them to the game.
Even though there was already a significant presence of law enforcement at the event, additional personnel were sent there to provide assistance.
A short while later, officers from the Everman Police Department observed a car that matched the description of the suspect vehicle going southbound on Race Street in the direction of the Everman High School football stadium.
Officers made an attempt to do a traffic stop on the car, which eventually came to a halt in front of the entrance to the east gate of the stadium. Officers were able to find an AR Pistol along with a 60-round magazine from inside the vehicle, where they also detained three suspects.
“It is apparent that this individual intended to cause harm when they arrived. This evening, a large number of lives were spared because to the rapid thinking and action taken by the Tarrant County Deputy who supplied the information, as well as the alertness and reaction of the Officers who made the stop.”
After the event that took place, there was no further danger posed to those who were in attendance at the game.
