The power of social media

By Donna Westfall – September 27, 2016 – Approximately 2:30 this afternoon, Tuesday, September 27th, a member of the Del Norte and Curry County Scanner Feed put up this post, “Man on 4th and C walking down street with gun shooting off gun.”

Promptly, people responded and kept track of the man., ” southbond on 7th,” then  “Plaid shorts ponytail black sweater,”  then “Suspect has been identified schools lockdown lifted.” then, “Holy cow that’s why the cops were flying threw town.”

Emergency personnel responded. The man was picked up with no gun. Shortly after, reports came in that the gun was recovered.

Thank  you’s to all the public that participated in the Scanner Feed Group, law enforcement and emergency personnel that tracked this and handled this potentially dangerous situation. Big thank you to Del Norte and Curry County Scanner Feed for their Facebook group.
