Mystery Shots Fired at Dallas City Elementary

The initial 9-1-1 call came in just before 9:30 this morning as “shots fired at the Dallas City Elementary School”.

When Hancock County Deputies, followed by Dallas City, Hamilton and Illinois State Police arrived, they locked down the building & grounds, students & staff, and then conducted a search.

A short time later, authorities determined the school was safe and that no one had been in any danger throughout the process, which ended shortly after 11 am.

Deputies and State Troopers continue their investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office at 217-357-2115.

    Hancock County Officers are corrupt criminals not Police investigators. They couldn’t find a pile of shit in a manure wagon. Shots fire but there’s no danger aduhhhh.. If I were a parent of one of these kids I think I would be ending my kids school year like right now or at least until this issue was resolved and not by a dumbass Hancock County Officer/Criminal. Shit from the sounds of it nothing will ever be done about it, someone will have to die before they see any danger.
