Dearborn police discuss open carry incidents, phone threats to mosque

DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) - Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad held a press conference this morning to discuss recent incidents that have occurred within the city. 

Watch the full press conference below: 


Police discussed a video posted to social media over the weekend. In it, you see several people walking down Schaefer in Dearborn. Some of the people were strapped with long guns, others with handguns and someone walking was recording it all on a cell phone.

This most recent "open carry" incident he says adversely impacted the community.

It was just a few weeks ago when two men entered the lobby of the Dearborn police department with cameras rolling, armed with assault rifles and other guns. That video too went viral. The two men involved in that case were upset with police after they questioned the two at a park earlier in the day.

Chief Haddad also expressed his dismay regarding phone messages that were left at a local mosque.
