Update (June 25):
LITTLE ROCK, AR – The Little Rock Police Department says the incident is not believed to be a case of swatting.

The address is a vacant home, and according to police, officers have answered several calls recently to the address.

Original story (June 24):
LITTLE ROCK, AR – SWAT Team members converged on a house Monday afternoon after receiving what turned out to be a phony phone call.

Officers responded to the 3000 block of Malloy Street in Little Rock just after 2:30 Monday afternoon, where a caller said he’d shot someone and was in possession of two AR-15 firearms.

Upon arrival, officers found no one at the home, which neighbors say has been abandoned for 2-3 months.

Police are now trying to track the cellphone.
