Police swarmed Arlington’s Halls Hill neighborhood today after a caller falsely reported a shooting inside of a house.
The incident happened along the 1800 block of N. Dinwiddie Street, in the historically Black neighborhood also known as High View Park, just before 5 p.m.
A caller told 911 dispatchers that he had just shot his wife inside of a home, according to scanner traffic. Shortly after a large police and fire department response arrived on scene, the report was determined to be false.
The circumstances suggest an instance of “swatting” — or harassment by way of making a false report that sends a large police response to someone’s address.
The Arlington County Police Department says that officers “remain on scene investigating the circumstances of the call.”
