A “mannequin challenge” video of people staging a shootout has led to the arrests of two men in Huntsville, Alabama and the seizure of several guns and marijuana.
Madison County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mike Salomonsky tells local news outlets the video led investigators to serve a search warrant Tuesday morning at a Huntsville home.
Caution: Some viewers may find video offensive:
The search turned up two handguns, a shotgun, a rifle and marijuana that appeared to be packaged for sale.
Officers arrested 23-year-old Terry Martez Brown and charged him with drug paraphernalia possession, loitering and promoting prison contraband.
Also arrested was 49-year-old Kenneth Fennell White, who’s charged with first-degree marijuana possession and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The video has been shared 86,000 times since it was posted to Facebook on Nov. 9.
It’s unclear if Brown or White have attorneys.
And, according to AL.com, a computer also was taken into custody for intelligence gathering, Salomonsky said.
The investigation into the video began shortly after it was posted nearly a month ago, but further information was needed for investigators to get a search warrant, Salomonsky said.
