SWAT secure address on South Empire for Joplin Police Detectives investigating an assault

Local News

 “Joplin SWAT responded to 2304 ½ South Empire in reference to several warrants for the Joplin Police Investigations Bureau,” Sgt Nick Jimenez tells us.

In the beginning of our live video you can see camouflaged SWAT TEAM members as they load up and leave in the ‘bread truck’ aka the unmarked white box truck that transports the team.

“The case is ongoing. It’s in reference to an assault,” however he could not elaborate when the assault occurred, person, type of injuries, etc as those details are part of the investigation.

Finally he told us there were no arrests made as of newstime.

More information when available. Remember to take a pic or short video when you see police activity. Even if it’s just vehicles and a building it gives us an idea of what is happening.
