7:05 PM: Police and fire are arriving at a “scenes of violence” call in the 3200 block of 41st SW, near SW Hinds [map]. Nearby streets are being blocked off, More to come.
7:15 PM: Still not sure of the circumstances that led to this response – our crew is on the way – but radio communication indicates police are talking with people who were in the house to which they were called.
7:21 PM: Police tell our first person on the scene, Christopher Boffoli, they believe this was a hoax/false report, but they are still checking and re-checking to be sure. SFD is being cleared.
7:30 PM: Police are reopening the streets.
7:37 PM: Police have verified that this was a hoax.
P.S. Making a call like that is a crime.
