As I write this story, it is 5:57 PM eastern US time. For about the past three hours, a strange and possibly dangerous situation has developed atop Hoover Dam: A man driving an ARMORED CAR, claiming to have guns and/or "a bomb" has stopped his truck across the lanes of Hoover Dam Road and is displaying paper signs in the windows of the truck.
A major police response has taken place, but the person in the truck is almost completely immune to police. Armored trucks are bullet-proof, including their windows.
When the story began, a virtual non-stop caravan of police vehicles headed out to the dam. A Command Post was set up.
There are fears the truck may contain explosives, in some terrorist effort to blow up the dam.
"There are reports of a person with a gun at the Hoover Dam. Police said the person is stopped in the travel lanes in the middle of the dam in a dump truck or tactical vehicle. The person has allowed vehicles to go through but expect delays on the Dam Bypass Bridge on U.S. 93. "— 𝑵𝒊𝒄𝒌 (@9Joe9) June 15, 2018
UPDATES TO FOLLOW BELOW . . .
The fact he was able to drive down and cross the dam road it's possible that it is a terrorist attack. They built a bridge road across the gorge so that this wouldn't happen.
Apparently, the truck is actually on the bridge over the dam, and NOT on the dam itself. In a weird turn of events, the driver of the truck is holding a sign in the window now which reads "Mr President, release the reports."
"Lv 003" is on the side of truck, that's no ordinary civilian vehicle. (Continued below Ad)
Suspect in custody. Situation over without violence.
