SPRING VALLEY, NY – Swatting Incident at Target in the Spring Valley Marketplace
UPDATE (11:00pm) via Spring Valley Police Department
On 12/10/2020 at approximately 1735 hrs, the Spring Valley Police Department received a phone call from a male in the Target Store at the Spring Valley Marketplace who stated he was armed, had multiple hostages, and placed explosives throughout the store.
The Spring Valley Police Department immediately dispatched units to the location and the incident turned into a multi-departmental operation being lead by the Spring Valley Police Department.
The Target Store was evacuated and cleared by agencies on scene as well as numerous Canine Units from throughout the state.
Once the Target Store was deemed safe of any immediate threat, the store was re-opened as well as the rest of vehicular and pedestrian traffic to the Spring Valley Marketplace. Although the investigation is currently pending, it appears that the initial call was a “swatting” incident.
