Police Catch Deadly Criminals In The Act — Guess Where They Came From?
(StraightNews.org) – Sadly, mass shootings have become more prevalent in the US these days, and they often seem to dominate the news cycle. However, one heroic citizen recently stopped a likely mass shooting from taking place by calling the police after hearing two men planning such a tragedy.
On Friday, July 1, a bystander overheard a conversation between two illegal immigrants in Richmond, Virginia where they were planning to carry out a mass shooting at the city’s Independence Day celebration. At a press conference on Wednesday, July 6, Richmond Chief of Police Gerald Smith called the person who provided the tip a hero and noted three firearms and more than 200 rounds of rifle ammunition were found at the home of one of the likely shooters.

Police picked up the second man likely to carry out the mass shooting on Tuesday, July 5 nearby in Charlottesville, Virginia. These arrests came just days after a young, white male opened fire on a July 4th Parade in Highland Park, Illinois, killing seven and injuring dozens.
In this case, the two men planning the attack had been deported multiple times but continued to return to the US illegally, giving them the chance to plan out this shooting that was thankfully thwarted. The police do not yet have a motive for the planned shooting.
