Tuesday afternoon social media started lighting up with reports of police activity near Davidson. The news came just a day after the horrific shooting at the Highland Park, Illinois July 4th parade.
Neighbors in Cornelius reported police cars speeding down roads in neighborhoods and the sounds of helicopters overhead. Some residents in Antiquity said that police officers advised them to go shelter in their homes.
Just after 4 p.m., the Town of Davidson posted the following:
