Law enforcement officials in Virginia arrested two illegal aliens who allegedly plotted a mass shooting on a July 4 celebration after a “hero citizen” overheard a conversation about the plot and immediately called the police.
“Two illegal immigrants, 52-year-old Julio Alvarado-Dubon and 38-year-old Rolman Balacarcel, were arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizens in possession of a gun after police uncovered a plot that the duo planned a mass shooting at Richmond’s July 4 celebration Monday,” Fox News reported. “[Richmond Chief of Police Gerald] Smith addressed reports that one of the suspects has been deported several times and continued to reenter the country illegally, saying that it was “frustrating” that a person could continue to break the law and have an opportunity to still plan out a mass murder.”
A police officer and a suspect were both killed in a shooting on Detroit’s west side Wednesday night.
The incident occurred at about 7:40 p.m. local time after officers responded to a report of “shots fired,” according to the Detroit Police Department.
The officer was struck by gunfire and rushed to a hospital, where he died. Detroit Police Chief James White said in a briefing that the fallen officer, whose name was not released, was a five-year veteran whose own father had also served in the department.
