Police have some good news to share about the victims now though.
There was no mention of terrorism. Don’t spread fear. They kept our vehicles but we were all released without any questioning. I guess I’ll update when I get my truck. pic.twitter.com/jm1WEvE5nl— Jessica Dalessandro (@Jessica87Jean) May 25, 2018
All of the people who were sent to the hospital have recovered enough to be released according to police.
