A caller to 911 reported that he had shot his mother and would shoot any law enforcement officers who came to the residence on Carmen Woods Drive. The individual advised his mother was was bleeding and he was barricading himself in an upstairs bedroom.

Officers arrived on scene and established a perimeter. Contact by phone was established with persons in the residence, and all of the individuals in the residence eventually came out voluntarily.

No injuries were reported and was determined that no crime had been committed by anyone at the residence.

Further investigation determined this was a “swatting” incident and no one from the residence had called in the false report.

This incident remains under investigation. and is being handled by Deputy Raley.

This is triggered by false reporting of a serious law enforcement emergency, such as a bomb threat, murder, hostage situation, or other alleged incident. – WIKI

The action or practice of making a prank call to emergency services in an attempt to bring about the dispatch of a large number of armed police officers to a particular address. – Dictionary

      Killed how? Cops don’t killed unarmed or innocent people.

        Yeah. That NEVER happens…………

        Don’t be such an idiot.

        A sudden move – or a flash seen by an officer and suspected to be a gun…..THINK!

        Many unfortunate high-risk tragic possibilities exist when some fool pulls a stunt such as this. Real funny.

        And now that it has media coverage – it will happen more often.

        once actually when I was 16 a state trooper, stuck a gun in my face, slammed me on the gravel, kneeled on my neck, and for what? A bowl.

          Well since you are advertising that you are a “vet” – we will kiss your a$$ instead of calling you a stoner.

          Be glad laws have relaxed a bit since those days.

          In either case – that was then…..

    • Anon on August 20, 2019 at 6:48 am

      It isn’t our cops that need controlling “around here”.

      It is your fellow criminal hoodie rats.

      • Fore arm Tattoos dont make you tough on August 20, 2019 at 12:51 pm

        100 cops show up to a suicide threat in Wildwood. Talk about a waste of resources. They are supposed to be Cops not the national guard. What good does it do anyone to send that many cops anywhere, ever? Open air drug deals at shell while they are busy writing speeding tickets to contractors. why? Money. Cops around here are a joke.

        • Mr. Perfect has Spoken on August 26, 2019 at 9:42 am

          So because you saw something you thought was a waste – what?

          That makes this fine and dandy?

  3. Nick on August 19, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    What the hell is wrong with people?
    They think this kind of crap is funny!
    Our country has gone to hell and there is
    no return!

    • Anon on August 20, 2019 at 6:52 am

      A.G. Barr is plotting our return.

      Event trashy NYC is now considering tighter legislation that will begin to rebuild the respect deserved by our LEOs.

      This $hit is not funny. Someone could be hurt or killed by accident.

      It certainly wastes valued resources that could leave a void elsewhere – at a REAL crime situation.

      Grow the F UP!

  5. Anonymous #13 on August 19, 2019 at 12:51 pm

    911 should have a record of the number the call came from. Just trace it back to that phone number. Really stupid a** joke to pull when police have enough crap to deal with. Make the phony caller do 1000 hours of community service like cleaning toilets at a shopping mall. SMH.

    • Dont have kids for the good of mankind on August 20, 2019 at 8:21 am

      I guess they should just hire you, you have it all figured out. I’m sure no one thought to look at the caller ID…

      That is part of the technique. The phone number is masked, and usually “looks” like it came from where the police are dispatched to. The caller didnt tell them the address. The call could have come from anywhere in the world. Get a clue.

    • Spoof Spoofington on August 20, 2019 at 8:43 am

      Unfortunately, it’s ridiculously easy to fake the number, the origination, etc.
      And people have gotten killed from this in the past.

  6. FatCopsneedsabrain on August 19, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    So, some lowlife endangers innocent peoples’ lives, and you blame the cops? Must be sad to be you.

  7. Seriously on August 19, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Charge the boy and his parents. Make them pay for the manpower by taking their tax return or making them work it off. Yeah I said it WORK.
    This is disgraceful. No one has any self discipline or act-right. Swatting at my house growing up and my children growing up was a butt whooping for this kind of thing.

    • READ IT ALL? on August 20, 2019 at 6:55 am

      The article did NOT say it was those of that address that pulled the stunt.

      It was only the address the fool falsely gave out as part of the lie.

      At least that was my take so far…..

      “Further investigation determined this was a “swatting” incident and no one from the residence had called in the false report.”

    • Anonymous on August 20, 2019 at 7:44 am

      Why would they charge the boy and his parents? They already figured out that the call did not come from any of them.

      “Further investigation determined this was a “swatting” incident and no one from the residence had called in the false report.”

    • Wow on August 20, 2019 at 8:23 am

      You CLEARLY dont know how swatting works. The phone call DIDNT come from that residence.

    The 911 manual says you are allowed to call 911 by accident, but you must tell them you called by accident.

    • Wiggy on August 20, 2019 at 5:04 am

      There’s a 911 manual? Is this for the public or for the dispatcher? What does this manual cover? How to dial 911?
