On May 14 at approximately 2:12 P.M. West Des Moines Police Patrol Officers were dispatched to a possible shooting at 719 19th Street, West Des Moines. Officers made contact with the residents of that address and everyone inside was fine. Upon further investigation, it appears that this call may have involved another jurisdiction in the State of Texas. The incident could possibly become a swatting incident.
