PD: Phone call was a hoax

April 5, 2012

Officials with the Big Spring Police Department say an emergency phone call received Wednesday afternoon reporting a possible homicide in the 600 block of Caylor was a hoax, although the matter is still under investigation.

According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer with the BSPD, officers responded to the scene after a man called 911 saying he had killed someone.

“Dispatch received the call from an inactivated cell phone,” Everett said Wednesday afternoon. “A male subject advised that he had killed someone at 601 Caylor, repeated the message and hung up.”

Everett said officers were notified by neighbors gunshots had been heard prior to law enforcement personnel arriving.

“A perimeter was established and the tactical team was called to the scene,” he said. “A female came out of the residence and was detained by officers. She told law enforcement officers nothing had happened in the home and that she hadn't made any calls to 911.

“The tactical team made entry into the residence and found no one was there, and there were no signs that anyone had been injured. It appears at this point the call was a hoax, however, the matter is currently under investigation.”

According to witnesses, nearly a dozen law enforcement vehicles shut down portions of Caylor and Sixth Street during the incident.
