Chadron ‘Active Shooter’ Incident

The following is the post from Alliance Police Department just before midnight Friday.

🚨 Update: Active Gunman Apprehended with Combined Efforts 🚨

We’re relieved to announce that the active gunman has been successfully taken into custody by the dedicated officers of the Chadron Police Department, with the invaluable assistance of numerous law enforcement agencies from across the panhandle region, including our own Alliance Police Department.

In a display of remarkable collaboration and teamwork, our officers joined forces with Chadron PD, providing four fully equipped officers and deploying our state-of-the-art Tactical Response Team Vehicle (TRTV). Together, we worked tirelessly to ensure a peaceful resolution to this highly dangerous situation.

We commend the professionalism, courage, and dedication exhibited by all the officers involved in this joint operation. Their unwavering commitment to protecting our community is truly commendable, and we are grateful for their service.

It is through these partnerships and the support of our community that we can effectively combat crime and maintain the safety and security of Alliance. We encourage you to remain vigilant, report any suspicious activity, and work together to create a safer environment for everyone.

The armed robbery suspect is still not in custody and on the run.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
