The “mannequin challenge” internet phenomenon usually consists of a group of people freezing in various poses while a person with a camera walks around them, filming from different angles.
Police say the “mannequin challenge” video that launched the investigation shows numerous people displaying guns, as if re-enacting a drive-by shooting.
Authorities from the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, the Huntsville Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives executed a warrant at 5012 Powell Drive at 5:02 a.m. on Tuesday.
According to reports, a mannequin challenge video depicting a drive-by shooting led to two arrests in Alabama, this week. Apparently, the video surfaced in early November on Facebook, showing multiple men pointing guns at one another outside of an #Alabama home with music playing in the background.
