Schaumburg police say gunshot call a false alarm
Schaumburg police responded to a call of shots fired Tuesday afternoon, but learned it was apparently a false alarm.
Police responded to a 911 call at about 4:45 p.m. Tuesday from a someone reporting two shots fired after a domestic dispute between a man and woman in a car on the 400 block of east Wise Road, police said.
"We didn't find any physical evidence at the scene such as sites where a bullet may have hit or bullet casings," Schaumburg police Sgt. John Nebl said.
Police said they remained in the area for about 30 minutes while investigating, looking for additional witnesses and using dogs to determine if a shooting occurred. Officers also called area hospitals to see if they treated any patients with a gunshot wound Tuesday, but police said they came up empty.
"Beyond the call, we found nothing else and felt there was no danger to the public," Nebl said, adding that the witness may have seen the domestic dispute and the aggressor may have used a stunner pistol.
"But we did not have any calls or anyone at the scene claiming to be a victim of any crime," Nebl added.
