Police Respond in Minutes to Dallas Apartment Community Gunfire

Posted by Amy Hite on Dec 6, 2022

All criminal activity in a multifamily community is a cause for concern- but gun violence is particularly devasting for the risk it poses to so many, including innocent bystanders that are simply at their homes. Every year, guns take a deadly toll on the Dallas-Fort Worth area. In the first 6 months of 2022, more than 400 people died in gun-related incidents in three area counties alone. Stealth Monitoring knows how important it is to respond to incidents of criminal activity as they’re happening.  

In the above video, Stealth security professionals caught sight of a group of individuals beginning to engage in a verbal altercation around 4:00 p.m. in a Dallas apartment community that quickly escalated to an exchange of gunfire between two groups. One individual was spotted with an automatic weapon, while others fired handguns from across the parking lot. Operators immediately reached out to local police and provided descriptions and locations of the suspects in real-time, and officers arrived on scene minutes later, after the suspects had run from camera view. 

Help Deter and Disperse Criminal Activity in your Multifamily Community with Live Video Monitoring 

Multifamily communities rely on property owners and managers to maintain a safe, secure, and desirable environment for them to call home. The trauma of experiencing a gunfight in their community may cause residents to want to leave, find another place to live, or deter others from choosing to live there. However, if they feel that the community takes these concerns seriously and responds quickly, that may not be the case.  

Our live video monitoring solution can help stop violent criminal activity before it happens. In the above video, our operators responded quickly to the violence as it occurred, but in many other cases, we’ve spotted the suspicious activity before it escalated to violence 

Our trained security professionals work in tandem with our analytics-based cameras to spot questionable activity and respond to it in real-time, following client protocols to either activate on-site alarms or contact local law enforcement when needed.
