    BREAKING: Man Opens Fire at Kids Summer Camp

    Published on

    Monday morning, police in a community north of Dallas, Texas, prevented a catastrophe after a gunman opened fire inside a building housing a summer camp for children.

    According to a Monday news release from the Duncanville Police Department, the incident occurred inside the Duncanville Fieldhouse, a sports complex located at 1700 S. Main Street in Duncanville.

    After the initial gunshots, the facility went into lockdown with approximately 250 children and staff members inside. Four to fourteen-year-olds were present at the camp, which was in its second week.

    At approximately 8:43 a.m. on that day, police began getting reports of an armed man inside the Duncanville Fieldhouse. The callers reported hearing gunfire inside the sports complex. At 8:45 a.m., police officers responded to the incident and arrived on the site. They then began searching for the armed individual.

    The Duncanville Police Department reported that a few minutes later, officers “quickly located and exchanged gunfire with a suspect armed with a handgun,”
