Two illegal immigrants were stopped from carrying out a planned mass shooting at a Fourth of July celebration thanks to a tip from a “hero citizen.” Richmond, Virginia’s Chief of Police Gerald Smith announced the discovery during a press conference Wednesday.
“A hero citizen picked up the phone and overheard a conversation there was a mass shooting being planned here in the city of Richmond, Virginia,” said Smith. “One phone call saved numerous lives on the Fourth of July,” Smith said on Wednesday. “The success of this particular investigation can only be juxtaposed against the horrors of which the rest of the country has seen. There is no telling how many lives this hero citizen has saved from one phone call.”
The ’hero citizen’ called in the tip on July 1st, prompting police to investigate the suspects’ residence. Officers saw “evidence in plain view,” immediately corroborating the tip.
Officers seized two semi-automatic rifles and more than 200 rounds of ammunition. Police said they found evidence that Julio Alvarado-Dubon, 52, and Rolman Balacarcel, 38, were planning to attack the city’s Independence Day celebration at the Dogwood Deli amphitheater, and a city baseball game.
National Review reports Alvarado-Dubon was arrested and charged with being a non-U.S. citizen in possession of a firearm on Friday. Balacarcel, who is Alvarado-Dubon’s roommate, was arrested and charged on the same count on Tuesday after a weekend of police surveillance.
The two are being held without bond and police say both suspects may face additional charges. Police did not identify a motive for the attack.

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend
A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.
The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”
That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.
Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
Another huge single group of 150+ migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass, TX as the sun came up this morning. Almost all single adults.
