DALLAS -- Dallas police back on high alert tonight after a reported threat to their headquarters.
Shortly before 6 P.M. tonight, the SWAT team started running toward the parking garage behind their HQ after rumors of a man in a hoodie and possibly a mask ran into the building.
With media from all over the nation reporting different things as fact, it prompted the DPD to start tweeting out what was actually going on:
-saying that reports about HQ being on lockdown is incorrect...
-saying that reports of shots being fired is incorrect...
-saying reporters putting out misinformation is making their jobs difficult.
and finally saying that officers are doing a systematic search of the parking garage for a suspicious person.
After that search was complete, no suspect was found.
Real or not, threat or not, it's something a city already on a heightened state of alert doesn't need.
