State Fair of Texas Shooting incident won’t bring any changes in the Security protocols, Fair officials say.
State Fair of Texas Shooting incident won’t change any security protocol.
The State Fair of Texas says there won’t be any changes in the safety protocols this year despite the shooting that harmed three individuals at the end of the week.
“We have this robust comprehensive security plan in place. It is all about executing that plan,” said Jeff Cotner, the Director of Security for the State Fair of Texas.
State Fair authorities said they did a “start to finish” survey of the security processes on Sunday.
Dallas police identified the suspect as 22-year-old Cameron Turner.
2 adults and a lady were shot in the Tower Building, which is the home to the food court.
At least one of the victims appears to have been an innocent bystander.
A gun was also recovered.
Turner is accused of various counts of disturbed attack with a dangerous weapon.
The Fair requests that participants know about their environmental elements.
“Be vigilant. When you park your car, when you walk in, if you see anything you are suspicious or concerned about tell the police officers when you come into the park,” “If they see anything out of place whatsoever seek out someone whether it is the safety team or police department,” said Cotner.
While the security conventions won’t change, the security presence will be expanded.
“We do make arrangements for an uplifted security presence on the edge of the grounds as well as throughout the carnival until the end of the 2023 State Fair of Texas,” said Karissa Condoianis, the senior VP of advertising for the State Fair of Texas.
The fair precludes weapons on the property. Notwithstanding, its arrangement makes a particular case for authorized weapon proprietors.
“We do plan for a heightened security presence not only on the perimeter of the grounds but throughout the fairgrounds for the remainder of the 2023 State Fair of Texas,” said Karissa Condoianis, the senior vice president of public relations for the State Fair of Texas.
