SHOCKING SHOOTOUT IN ANGEL PINE


Image Lulu Woodard · Published May 11, 2017 · SAN Network 
 

Owned by a local Motorcycle Club, The Shamrock pub was undergoing its grand opening on the 10th of May. The event was going well, many people from all walks of life were attending and having a blast.

In the middle of the grand opening, a loud crash was heard from the outside while patrons were enjoying their evening drink. Upon further inspection, two vehicles, a Sabre and a Walton, had collided and hit a few motorcycles in the process.

A crowd gathered around and tensions rose. Shortly thereafter the altercation between the drivers of the vehicles had turned physical. With upset bikers getting involved, the violence was widespread, nearly everyone came out of the bar to partake. The driver of the Sabre got back into his beat up car and proceeded to run a few members of the crowd over.

A brawl ensued and weapons ranging from baseball bats to handguns were pulled. A bearded male wearing a black cap, pictured below, was the first to open fire. In what is claimed to be self defense, three other males opened fire.

Aperture and State Police were quickly on-scene and once the situation was back under control three people laid dead in the street and six were left injured. Two arrests in connection to the shooting have been made. It is urged that you contact State Police if you have any information pertaining to the incident.

San Andreas State Police Job Fair
Published and edited by Mercedes Montana for County Radio on 6th May 2017

  • Job fair hosted by SASP offers great business opportunities for locals.
  • Recruitment drives assisted by production of fair.
  • A wide variety of businesses took part in the event.

Preparations for the San Andreas State Police job fair began well in advance as tables and fencing were laid out and pitched beside the grassy area beside the Montgomery gas station. With local produce from local Red County farms and hot & cold food stands made readily available, the residents of Red County were in for a treat.

Image


The job fair line up saw the likes of the San Andreas State Police, the Red County Fire Department, Elite Trucking, SAN Network, Casa Blanca Casino, Argent Aerospace, local farmers and us, County Radio; all of which received their very own stall to showcase their organizations to the Red County residents.

Image


Both Argent Aerospace and SAN Network received special care to ensure their vehicles were brought to the ground safely, with Deputy Director of Public Affairs Elena Green marking locations with flares for the pilots.

Image


Premium parking was also on offer with many thanks to local business Casa Blanca's who offered up their secure parking for a small fee. Fresh produce was also free for everybody at the fair, including fresh milk from Wendy the cow which could be seen by the produce table.

Image


An interesting addition to the fair saw the San Andreas State Police bomb disposal robot, known as Explosives Ordinance Disposal (EOD) which is part of the ESU unit.

Image


All in all the event was a success, with the weather holding out for the duration, the fair saw crowds of residents taking part and browsing through all the stalls and discovering more about the businesses that help build the economy in Red County. And it wouldn't have been a Red County without County Radio, who showcased a handful of our six DJ's, from DJ Mercy, DJ Legacy and DJ RockMP with DJ Meek joining our table later that evening.

RAMPANT VIOLENCE PLAGUES ANGEL PINE


Image Lulu Woodard · Published May 3, 2017 · SAN Network 
 

Angel Pine, once a prosperous small mountain town, now plagued by violence. Residents were shocked to hear automatic gunfire coming from just outside their homes at 3PM on May 1st. A horrifying and sinister attack on a local Motorcycle Club left four dead.

A grey Picador with two heavily armed males in the back, roamed the streets in search of what we assume to be a rival gang. They promptly gunned down anyone who was riding a motorcycle without questioning.

This brutal attack will not go unnoticed. State Police are looking into the shooting, it is believed that a similar incident the day previous, in which three were killed, is connected to this shooting. More Police have been assigned to the area and patrols are more frequent as a result of the recent surge in crime.

Any potential witnesses are urged to contact the Police with information.

New Leisure Facilities Hit Palomino

Published and edited by Mercedes Montana for County Radio on 2nd April 2017

  • Minature tennis court erected in town.
  • Free-to-use gym equipment and weights available.
  • New leisure facilities approved by local residents.

If you have spent some time in Palomino lately you may have noticed the newly erected miniature tennis court and gym equipment. The new leisure facilities, situated comfortably snug on Moyers road, has become a welcomed addition by local residents of Palomino, with many of the youth groups taking plenty of time out to work on their fitness.

The leisure facilities come as a great addition to the community by adding a new level of diversity among the bars and residential properties. With summer well and truly on its way, we may be seeing tennis tournaments as a possibility, rather than the current and exhausted methods of entertainment and competitions.

Have you been able to sweat it out on Palomino's tennis court? What are your thoughts? We'd love to hear your opinion in the comment section below!

Multiple Deceased Persons in Palomino Creek

Image

 

Image

 




A quiet early afternoon of a 22nd April 2017 in Palomino Creek was suddenly interrupted due to loud gunshots. Not so long after the gunshots were heard, our dispatcher received multiple calls, one from San Andreas State Police via departmental radio, about the injured males at Peach Block in Palomino Creek. After few units responded to the scene, they noticed a big number of deceased males spread around Peach Block, State Police units and few more injured inside of Palomino Creek Block 9.

Six DOAs (Dead on Arrival) were confirmed around Peach Block and all were a result of a shootout. Few injured that our employees found inside the Block 9 were safely transported to the Montgomery Hospital after they received needed medical assistance on the scene.
