Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Lake Orion High School, 495 E. Scripps Rd., at 1:20 p.m. April 8 after getting a report of someone trying to enter the school with a rifle.

The school liaison officer was on scene and said that no one had been allowed into the school during the time of the call.

Caller claims his father shot his mother, turns out to be swatting call

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a swatting call that led deputies to surround a home to investigate a possible shooting.

Deputies went to the 10 block of Hummingbird Drive at 6:15 p.m. March 8 after a young caller claimed to be hiding in a closet and heard his father potentially shoot his mother.

The caller told authorities that the couple was arguing, he then heard a loud bang, and everything went silent. The caller then disconnected.

Deputies established a perimeter around the home and were able to hail the occupants through loudspeakers and have them exit the home.

After securing the residents, deputies searched the interior of the home and found no signs of foul play. The residents did not match the names provided by the caller.

While deputies had all residents secured, the alleged caller inside the residence was still providing updates that were inaccurate.

Deputies released the residents and cleared the scene.

Swatting entails falsely reporting a dangerous situation, such as a shooting or hostage situation, to emergency lines such as 911 to get law enforcement to respond under false pretenses.
