NEW: Two 18-year-olds charged with multiple felonies after threat to Everman HS football game

Back on September 16th, a Tarrant County Sheriff’s deputy received a credible tip about a threat to the Everman High School homecoming football game. The threat indicated the suspect was currently driving to the homecoming game to utilize a weapon he had obtained earlier that day. The Sergeant deputy responded towards Everman and notified other agencies about the threat.

Everman police officers working the homecoming game were notified of the threat. More officers were dispatched to the football field for added security.

Officers observed a vehicle driving on Race Street near the football stadium matching the description given to the Tarrant County sheriff’s deputy. A felony traffic stop was conducted and the driver pulled over at the entrance to the stadium. Three people were ordered out of the vehicle and detained for questioning.

Police recovered an AR Pistol and a 60-round magazine from the vehicle.

Two of the occupants inside the vehicle, 18-year-old Brandon Gipson and 18-year-old Isaac Cooper were arrested at the scene and have been charged with Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon in a Prohibited Place, Terroristic Threat and Endangering a Child. All of these charges are felonies.

“Great work by TCSO and Everman Police in averting what could have been a dangerous and deadly incident,” said the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office in a statement.

The incident remains under investigation.

UPDATE: No major injuries after fiery 18-wheeler rollover in Lewisville

The Lewisville Police Department has closed all northbound lanes of Interstate 35E near Round Grove Road while emergency responders work to clean up an earlier crash involving an 18-wheeler.

Around 7:30pm this evening, Lewisville Fire Department and Police Department responded to the crash in the northbound lanes of the highway.

Part of the wreckage caught fire at the base of the TxDOT sign.

The people in the passenger vehicle were not injured. The driver of the 18-wheeler was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It is anticipated that northbound I35E will be closed for much of this evening while TxDOT crews inspect the sign and clean up crews clear the highway.
